Press reviews

There is nothing ordinary about the landscape through which this work travels. […] Each of the first two passages winds up becalmed on solo flutes and strings, and there is a beautiful cor anglais solo. But the real arrival comes with a taut, driven cadenza for the percussionists, striking to the heart of the work’s more brave that brutal personality. (Paul Griffiths)
