Press Quotes

"...a fascinating, multi-hued work that will no doubt reward repeated listening."

"The various motives emerge, evolve, dissipate and re-emerge in new guises between cello and orchestra. It is ingeniously achieved and seamlessly structured."
The Australian

"The cello is embedded in a continuous impulsive soundstream, with the orchestra spiced up with the exotic instrumental colours of sandpaper and Hammond organ. The principle is tension and relaxation, with lyrical moments following in an instant upon those of heightened energy."
