A New Review of LIGHT AND SHADOWS, WAVES AND TIME

Nearly six months after its release, it’s good to know that some nice reviews are coming in for LIGHT AND SHADOWS, WAVES AND TIME.

The latest comes from Sven Godenrath, a critic and opera aficionado from Hamburg, who includes the following:

In the first part of “Light and Shadows – Luminant shadows” begins the piano, played by Liz Ames very restrained, tender in pianissimo. Stephen Page proves here on the alto saxophone that you can inspire your audience with withdrawn, restrained, delicate tones.

A CD that saxophone fans have been waiting for too long.

Read the entire review here.

And to saxophone fans and others who like magnificently performed chamber music, there is no need to wait! You can order the CD right now!

Or for the more digitally inclined, here are more options to listen.
