Reviews

  • Fanfare Magazine

    The atmosphere [of Mountain Paths] is mysterious but not menacing, possessing a primeval grandeur. . . [Hobson] has a fine ear for instrumental color and dynamic contrast. . . I find some of the ideas Hobson uses to plan his music's shape fascinating and the results dramatically effective.
