What the critics are saying:
"Braxton went to Ontario to realize the operatically inclined vocal music on Creative Orchestra (Guelph) 2007 (Spool 30; 88:46) ***. The AIMToronto Orchestra was formed specially for this performance but there's no beginner hesitation in the dense woodwind textures, arrhythmic percussive figures and clanking electric guitar punctuation they bring to this jagged and forbidding music."
