"The album of music by Kawai Shiu, titled Stream and Seasons, nearly explodes with virtuosity and color. The performances are fearless and impeccable; the music is exciting and sensitive. 'Autumn Palette', only 2-1/2 minutes long, is a brilliant opening piece–full of fire, dense and compact but never forced. Farewell Bacchae is extended clarinet at it's best, widely expressive but cohesive, and clarinetist Li Xin is marvelous. The solo piece La Rosee Fond is a delicate arabesque in the very upper reaches of the instrument's range. In all of the pieces the timing is wonderful, both Shiu's and the performers'."
