"Appendage and Other Stories" Named a Fanfare Magazine Best of 2010
Lawrence Dillon's Appendage and Other Stories on Albany Records, which features mezzo soprano Theodora Hanslowe, has been named by critic Raymond Tuttle to Fanfare magazine's Best of 2010 Want List.

He writes in the magazine's November/December 2010 issue, "American composer Lawrence Dillon...writes music that is thought-provoking, sometimes funny, sometimes scary, and always interesting. Appendage is a terrific and theatrically exciting work for soprano and chamber ensemble. In it, the composer's inability to complete a work-in-progress is treated with surreal wit...and terror. 'Entrance' and 'Exit', which bookend the CD, are meditations on impermanence; each involves an actor. 'Still Point' is a love sonnet, and further demonstrates Dillon's gifts as a composer for voice. The performances are first class."
