When this recording was released, composer Christian Wolff was the last man standing among the former members of the "New York School.

New World Records' Christian Wolff: Ten Exercises takes an all-star cast through 12 Exercise 14b - Christian Wolff - Ten Exercises derived from his open scores published as Exercises and Exercisesworks that, played end to end, might last a little over two hours.
