...some of the most ambitious and daring British works of recent times. - Matthew Rye, The Telegraph


What always makes this composer’s works so rewarding is the clarity of texture, the purposefulness of direction. He selects material that remains recognisable throughout the work. There’s not a hint of intellectual showing-off, just an inexorable sense of logic enhanced by unabashed lyricism. - Annette Morreau, The Independent
