"Written across three years (2006-2008), Sosnowski's Symphony No. 4 boldly presents the mature compositional thinking of one of the twenty-first century's most audaciously original writers.
"Philosophically based in the Great Questions of the very origins of our existence and the nature of it; drawing on the quantum conjectures of modern physics about light and time and space; Sosnowski catapults the listener across a chasm of extrapolation -- to the concept that the stars themselves may be sentient, and speaking to us. 
"This is music that will endure the travails of time with luster, vibrancy and relevance; a foundational work in the classic literature of tomorrow -- rewarding ever greater depth and insight with every listen."

"A powerful, deeply moving philosophical statement, this landmark twenty-first century violin concerto explores mankind's search to ever further understand the cosmos and our place within it. 
"Those who love the Samuel Barber and Alban Berg masterpieces, the lucidity of Witold Lutoslawsky and the iconoclasm of Krzysztof Penderecki, will find themselves at home amid Sosnowski's masterful violin writing. With his hallmark lyrical woodwind passages, heroic brass treatments, and opulent string and ensemble writing, Sosnowski brings neo-Romanticism into a new century with stunning originality and uncompromising musical honesty.
"Composed in a massive, single-movement framework, Beyond the Event Horizon breaks all the rules, but triumphantly brings us new ones that inspire, elevate and ennoble the human condition." - Amazon.com
