Param Vir

Publisher: Novello & Co

...[the] sound-world is utterly individual [and]…moves at its own dangerously leisurely pace. Well, so do Bruckner and Birtwistle, and the way the audience was held in breathless silence at the climax…suggests Vir knows perfectly well what he is doing. - Rodney Milnes, Opera

(Horse Tooth White Rock) ...gripping - a superbly crafted...path from violence to transcendental calm, ending in a symbolic and sublimely lyrical canon for cor anglais and cello over hushed strings. - Richard Morrison, The Times
