Reviews

  • Allan Ulrich, San Francisco Chronicle Crossfire

    "Crossfire… arms the players with parallel percussion batteries and exploits the contrast between pitched and unpitched instruments. The sound was intriguing…”

    – Allan Ulrich
  • Benjamin Frandzel, San Francisco Classical Voice, Crossfire

    “Richard Festinger's Crossfire, a premiere, received a performance of high virtuosity and commitment from Dan Kennedy and William Winant. The piece demanded no less, with its fiery passagework and finely detailed, intricate exchanges between the players. This work has many strongly appealing qualities: it's both complex and highly kinetic, sensitive to pure sound and imbued with forward momentum.”

    – Benjamin Frandzel
