|“This is a fascinating CD of contemporary music by a composer at the cutting edge of his art. Here is music of penetrating intellectual achievement from a mind capable of using music to realise complex musical concepts with crystalline three-dimensional clarity. Wonderful value and I highly recommend it.” - Leslie Sheills (Pan Magazine)|
|You get the firm impression of a composer with an acute sensitivity to intervals and timbres, and the imagination not just the skills to transform his materials into compelling musical forms. There's a strong roster of players here. Performance * * * * * Sound * * * * - Keith Potter (BBC Music Magazine)|
