MEDIA REVIEWS
"Trochimzyck's efforts show a keen sense of the richness that Andriessen's music offers to scholars and critics in its integrity, complexity, depth and paradox. Her book succeeds in raising important themes and, at the same time, presents challenges to its readers. One of the greatest involves the question of its genre, and, by extension, its intended use.."
-Iotes
"Louis Andriessen has reached the level of seniority in European contemporary music at which a written study of his achievement ought to be available...Maja Trochimczyk's volume is the first to appear in English. From that point of view alone it's an invaluable source of documentation."
-"Music Magazine, January 1, 2003
