Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...the rising horn call and the other instruments' response with which the earlier work begins; two simple patterns refracted through the textures without ever quite losing their identity, yet generating moments of near-Wagnerian breadth and opulence. It's an extraordinarily potent piece, whose elusive character is perfectly captured by Reinbert de Leeuw and Asko|Schönberg..." - Andrew Clements, The Guardian "...the rising horn call and the other instruments' response with which the earlier work begins; two simple patterns refracted through the textures without ever quite losing their identity, yet generating moments of near-Wagnerian breadth and opulence.
