“…wonderfully orchestrated… dynamic and endlessly evolving.” —BBC Music Magazine

“…the sounds of nature course through the orchestral pieces…with a primitive force and melodic insistence that recall Stravinsky.” —The New Yorker

“In [Bones and All] the composer proves himself once more a past master of writing for the voice, setting the complex text by Katarina Knehans with perfect command of the genre… Those words give closure to an impressive work by Douglas Knehans, an ever-challenging, ever-surprising musical artist." - All About the Arts

"Pairing two new works for orchestra with soloist is Knehans’ newest disc Cloud Ossuary.

Recorded with tremendous fidelity and color the disc includes Knehans’ Mist Waves  for solo violin and strings performed in this recording by the brilliant Czech violinist Pavel Wallinger. Wallinger’s keening lines sit wonderfully against the withheld backdrop of the Brno Philharmonic strings.
