Praise for “The Dark Glass Sinfonia”

Praise for “The Dark Glass Sinfonia”

From a glowing review for Prisma Vol. 3 on textura:

Wallin-Huff’s brooding The Dark Glass Sinfonia is as mysterious as its title, the composer here melding atonality with modal harmony in a dramatic tone poem that recalls at certain moments Bartok and Shostakovich… The quality level is high throughout [the album], but the release earns its recommendation for the pieces by Alabaca, Wallin-Huff, and Vassdal in particular. Of all the album’s settings, one imagines these three would most stop an audience in its collective tracks upon encountering them in a concert set-list.
