Press Quotes

Deutsch

"Dean sees the relationship between soloist and orchestra as similar to that of the hero and the world; the conflict and collaboration of leading figure and the mass characterizes the classic, three-part work. After a rhythmically trenchant first movement and a monologue-like second, Dean pulls out all the stops in the final part, The Accidental Revolutionary, and cross-fades, reminiscent of Gustav Mahler, quotations and his own material into a collage-like clash of sounds and times." (Stefan Ender, Der Standard, 02.09.2013)
