In Kharms Way - May 2016
"…another very enlightening and stimulating evening from Voice Afire! Ray Luedeke has a gift for weaving texts and music together, and the string writing was quite wonderful throughout. …very impressive the way the music matched the spirit and tone of the words …an integrated whole out of the whole thing, as if he had worked in tandem with the poet from the beginning. Bravo!" Joshua Rosenblum
