Press Quotes  
“Mr Carter’s music keeps the listener busy. The vocal lines are by and large in long, unbroken phrases and the instrumental music around them seethes. There are the snare drums and sharp percussive detonations so familiar to his music, the rippling mallet percussion and the short bursts of winds and strings. Stevens’s reflections have an outdoor setting, and you can almost hear the insects buzz and the birds chirp.”
New York Times
