"This is a brilliant, energetic score, dominated ... by utterances of the brasses, and it becomes increasingly interesting when, toward the close, there are surprises of texture, of gait, and of harmony." Andrew Porter, The New Yorker "The center of interest was Charles Wuorinen's CROSSFIRE, a highly charged, emphatic 12minute piece ... CROSSFIRE brims with bright primary colors." New York Times
