REVIEWS

“All Done from Memory was written for Janet Packer at her request, and it is doubtful whether there is in the known universe another human or non-human being who could better perform the piece in the precise intonation of quarter, sixth, and twelfth-tones as specified by the composer.”

—Nicolas Slonimsky

“Janet Packer brings a warmth and conviction that makes these performances very emotionally satisfying.”

—Fanfare
