    Review by Peter Burwasser

    "Cantilena Infinita is a fine example of a manner of expression that is unique to our times, speaking a language. . . that expresses a point of view that Mozart could not have known. . . taut, powerful music."

    Review by Robert Kirzinger

    "From the early Trio 1966 to the latest piece on this disc, Trio, Hobson's style recalls the Romantic era. Though his pitch and rhythmic language grows out of Schoenberg and Sessions, the shapes of the larger phrases and the rubato applied in these performances link Hobson to the 19th century. . . These are well-written pieces, particularly the Cantilena Infinita."
