"Wuorinen has produced a bold piece that comes out and addresses an audience assertively and originally ... RHAPSODY catches and holds the attention and plays to an audience." San Francisco Chronicle "A substantial and startling work ... The solo part often leaps wide intervals, sometimes indulges in elegiac excursions, but it is also intrinsically violinistic in character, with episodes of rapid passagework recalling nothing so much as down-home fiddling." San Francisco Examiner
