The performances seem to be unbeatable

British Music Society, Gary Higginson

…the Little Symphony for String orchestra (2013) has two haunting ideas, a Brittenesque exuberant one, which is contrasted with a deeply nostalgic singing one. These are opposed and developed in a way which makes this a perfectly satisfying fifteen minute work, wonderfully played by George Vass’s Orchestra Nova.

…the performances seem to be unbeatable, and one assumes that the composer was present for the sessions. Highly recommended.”
