Violin Concerto

New York Times

‘The album ends with a bracing 25 minute Violin Concerto (2001), played by Laura Frautschi, for whom it was written. And just when you think you have acclimated to Mr. Hyla’s raucousness, the music takes time to ruminate, with lacy, pensive violin writing and tender orchestra harmonies that pay subtle homage to the haunting Violin Concerto of Alban Berg.’ – Anthony Tommasini, New York Times, 6/13/04
