"Nazziola is doing astonishing compositional work...

His talent is rare. His contribution indispensable."

- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"In its depictions of the glories of the seasons, as well as its transience,

Nazziola's 'Another Spring' is a work of delicate transparency...

chromatically complex, but haunting and evocative."

- William Randall Beard, Special to the Star Tribune (Minneapolis, MN)

"From Here to There...a piece for percussion that is musically interesting and

intelligently written...and yet totally accessible for the audience."

- Morris Lang, Former percussionist New York Philharmonic

Excellent and well orchestrated…..certainly a most impressive score."

- Samuel Adler (regarding Night Unfolding)
