Viva Voce
"What a great CD! Not only is it technically brilliant in the rudiments of just having things happen together, in tune, in time and balanced; this recording displays some great individual artistry in phrasing, rubati and expressive interpretation. Steven's music is current, fun, challenging, engaging and, above all, heart-felt."

-Gene Pokorny
Principal Tuba, Chicago Symphony Orchestra
