Broad Street Review: “Performances by the husband-and-wife team of Ryan MacEvoy McCullough and soprano Lucy Fitz Gibbon, who worked with both composers to realize this recording, are magnificent.”

American Record Guide: “Once more McCullough’s control over all these technical and musical contrasts is superb.”


4920D179-0F66-4E66-AABB-34F6DEC3616AClevelandClassical.com: “Relentless yet detail-oriented, McCullough implies phrases and syncopations within the torrent of notes.”





BBC Music Magazine: “… wacky but well-delivered.”

Midwest Record: “Wild stuff destined for the left leaning hall of fame, in addition to Zappa/Boulez fantasies, you can hear Leonard Bernstein taking “West Side Story” through hell and so much more that you never imagined. Way out there, but with chops.”

Winnepeg Free Press: “… intrepid ears will be rewarded with Vines’s imaginative vision, with the fierce artistry of MacEvoy McCullough the icing on the cake.”



Textura: “Within the second movement, a melodic idea germinates that is expanded upon in the parts that follow before culminating in “VIII. Vision Fulfilled,” which finds the electronics wholly stripped away and McCullough ruminating solo in all his virtuosic glory for ten-plus minutes.”

Classical Modern Music: “Ryan MacEvoy McCullough gives a fabulous performance. Highly recommended!”



American Record Guide (July-Aug. 2012): “the crystalline clarity of his technique serves him well in revealing Beethoven’s complex and yet witty contrapuntal architecture, first in the trio of the Alla Marcia and later the canonic and fugal excursions of the final movement.”
