Press Quotes      Deutsch
"Birtwistle's The Tree of Strings – an evocation of what might have survived of a lost musical culture on the Hebridean island of Raasay – is starting to emerge as one of his finest recent achievements. It seems to reveal more mysteries and beauties with every performance, and the Ardittis play it wonderfully."
The Guardian
