"The Coolidge Auditorium at the Library of Congress was the site of an important musical event last night: the world premiere of the Sonata for Violin and Piano by the renowned contemporary composer Charles Wuorinen- The sonata ... was compelling from the opening phrase...The performance, by violinist Benjamin Hudson and pianist Garrick Ohlsson was splendid, and set an enviable standard for future and hopefully frequent performances of this fine addition to the repertoire." Washington Post "A Stunning West Coast premiere of Charles Wuorinen's Sonata ... a tightly conceived, exciting monolith." Los Angeles Times
