Press Quotes

"The work's four instrumental groups – woodwind, brass, strings and percussion – echo and react to each other as though in a latter-day Gabrieli canzona. ...the way in which his blocks of musical material move in and out of focus, become submerged and resurface again in different forms, or just occasionally combine into gestures of seismic intensity, still seems the product of a mysterious ritual of which the audience only experiences one element."
