Press Quotes

“…a work shot through with menace… while the fluttering lines of the flute suggest mental instability, Turnage uses the orchestra to project the emotional undercurrents… The heart of the work is the shadowy passacaglia, whose minatory power comes from its scoring for throbbing bass wind and piano.” The Guardian

“It’s a work that reveals a wealth of introspective sensitivity as well as Turnage’s typically head-on brutalism, ranging from the languid alto flute movement to the piercing eruptions of the piccolo cadenza…” The Scotsman
