Joseph Horovitz

Publisher: Novello & Co

He is a composer of remarkable versatility, graceful wit and an enviable ability to communicate, whether in his refreshingly light or more serious styles. - The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians


It is with unfailing skill and abundant invention that the composer combines his jazz harmonies and rhythms with sonata, aria and rondo to produce in the outer movements particularly an exhilarating feeling of boundless energy and growing momentum. (Trumpet Concerto) - The Daily Telegraph
