“Taking a trip into the world of fairytale, Aaron Price’s Merfolk refers to the half-human creatures of legend. This is their siren song: restrained, beautiful, sustained, radiant.
Fanfare Magazine, Colin Clarke

“Aaron Price’s music [Aboard the Phantom Train] imagines a supernatural train ride, with the flute and clarinet suggesting train whistles, as the eerie locomotive picks up steam. It is a highly entertaining and well-crafted piece of musical drama.
Fanfare Magazine, Peter Burwasser
