REVIEWS

The disc takes its title from Andrew Ford's brief piece Spinning. This is really only a miniature, but it is an enjoyably energetic and well-crafted one. In fact, though, the most interesting work on the disc is Carl Vine's Sonata for Flute and Piano which successfully pursues the same kind of driving, insistent path as the composer's piano sonata [no.1].
Laurie Strahan
The Australian. May 1995.
