"When composer Charles Wuorinen gave the downbeat, it was as if someone had thrown an electric switch ... Think of an electrical force field radiating energy.  'That is Wuorinen's SHORT SUITE.  This is music somehow connected with the very life force, somehow vital and alive, making us feel more vital and alive as we experience it."
