“Wheeler works from the personal to the universal, not the other way around.” Wow, what a nice way to descr...ibe my approach in these pieces, and what a nice way to end my musical year. Have I mentioned that Don Berman’s playing is amazing…

"What a lovely compliment Anthony Tommasini paid to Dinosaur Annex by choosing to end this article with mention of us! His recounting of Dino’s invitation to the eminent violinist and new music enthusiast Louis Krasner to speak before one of our concerts in 1983 was a sweet reminder of our more than 40 years of dedication to living composers." -- Sue-Ellen Hershman-Tcherepnin, Co-Artistic Director
