Nicolas Flagello's work is "modern" but not too modern; these pieces are basically tonal with just enough notes you don't expect to be exciting and stimulating. I do not usually appreciate atonal music, but here it seems just right. I found myself humming the melodies at work -- even all the notes my untutored ears didn't expect! Peter Vinograde a very good-humored and laid-back man, and his performance on this CD reflects that. This music and its performance is infused with inspiring spiritual and intellectual freedom. Kudos!
