Press Quotes

"At its premiere, the progression of musical ideas in this piece was clearly audible, and the performance itself was powerful and marked by opulent sound. The sense of humour and dance-like character were presented as archaic ideas in an apocalyptic game – rather as though Stravinsky had written a scherzo in Bruckner’s style." (Thomas Willmann, tz München, 21 Mar 2001)
