Grinning mischievously from ear to ear, MTT introduced the new work as confirmation of the composer's uncompromising integrity. They have been friends for a very long time. Wuorinen hit his milestone birthday with a relatively accessible work that shimmers, shakes and ingratiates, but retains a characteristic refusal to yield itself too simply. Fun, fast and aptly titled, "Sudden Changes" met expectations and merits future hearings. Philip Campbell, Bay Area Reporter
