O’s Notes: This was quite a surprise, a dynamic symphony with strings led by conductor and composer Jürgen Friedrich. The band is lucid with exacting precision that is uncharacteristic of a large ensemble. Bassist John Hébert turns in a fine performance on “Ritual” with a lengthy solo introduction. Of note is “Loops” our favorite of the set, kind of out there but still accessible. The overall performance is very good and engaging.
