"After her riveting prelude-like solo, Schweizer applied her pan-stylistic approach to Guy’s challenging, playerempowering score. Though Guy retained the form’s traditional utility as a soloist’s showcase on “Radio Rondo,” he expanded the scope of the rondo’s back and forth to feature Schweizer in several subgroupings – a pummeling quintet passage with Guy, bassist Barre Phillips, and drummers Paul Lytton and Lucas Niggli – as well as encounters with the full force of the 17-piece contingent. In the later, Guy cued single-note stabs, flurried textures and a host of other events from parts of the orchestra, spiking the power of the notaded materials. For all of the piece’s intensity, Guy slipped beautiful passages – like the plaintive melody stated by tenor saxophonist Simon Picard – into the piece. A magisterial theme set up the piece’s final tutti blast.”
