      • May 2011 Review

        “American Perspectives comprises four pieces for violin (with or without piano) by Matthew Tommasini, all written for Martha Walvoord, and they share a common theme—the United States of America.  From Appalachian folk music in ‘Fiddle States’, to US-Mexico border-crossers in ‘Passage’, each piece aims to touch on one aspect of what it is to be from, or to be attempting to relocate to, the US.  They are accessible and colorful, and they are brought to life by excellent performances by Walvoord, an enthusiastic and expressive player.” American Record Guide Review (May/June 2011) of “American Perspectives: Works for Violin by Matthew Tommasini,” compact disc, Centaur Records, CRC 3058, © 2010 Centaur Records, Inc..
