"The Riviere Ensemble was chosen to give a series of concerts in historic churches in south-west France. The scores and words, mostly composed by Carter, show all of the quintet to be superb interpreters and improvisers. The result has elements of classical, jazz, free improvisation and traditional musics, fused together to form a unique music that is beyond any category except excellent."-Emanem
