"Philippe Manoury's Jupiter is a pioneering work, the first to use score-following to synchronize live electronics with the performer."
--James Harley, composer

"Manoury's score Last puts the unlikeliest of musical partners, a bass clarinetist and a marimbist, through an exhilarating relay race."
--John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune

"En echo is a succulent extravaganza of computer-generated sounds interacting with the purity of a solo soprano."
--Keith Potter, The Independent (London)
