Musical Opinion Review of the RLPO Premiere April 2023 by Paul Conway

“…a compelling soundscape.  Woodwind flourishes and insistent rhythmic patterns in trumpets, harp and percussion, successively, intensified the anxious, hypersensitive atmosphere, while the composer’s imaginative use of insinuating string and harp glissandos was especially haunting.”
