Reviews

reactions to the 2006 premiere & recording include

"It's a work of sheer genius. Can't express enough admiration for it. It's tremendous to have musicians as visionary as you at work in this country." - Kevin Bowyer (University of Glasgow)
"This is amazing, wonderful, completing surprising, drunk with cleverness, and brilliant. I love the way you take no prisoners." - Rick Bjella (Appleton, WI, USA)
"It is wonderful - poised between heaven and Hoffnung! Sometimes batty and sometimes very moving... It's disconcertingly hard to know where you're coming from sometimes (maybe you are not always sure either) which is quite unsettling: one either likes that feeling or not..." - John Hawkins (London)
