Press Quotes

"... interesting and colorful music, distinctive in character and particular to its composer, while the genre is Western, melodic treatment and rhythmic patterns of the music of the Near East. Primarily a melodic piece, the highly inflected line occasionally resembles Cantillation, at other times is melismatic as in the second movement. The last movement is rhythmic. A clear and open texture allows the soloist to express the embellished line freely. Like a true concerto there is a good balance of activity between solo passages and orchestral passages." (Peter Farrell, ‘Notes’ – Journal of the Music Library Association, Dec 1982)
