“Marvellous piece, lovely dark openings in the cello and basses. A lot of wonderful texture and colour built into a terrific harmonically rich mixture.. An odd thing to say about music but I thought it was complex, I thought it was intelligent. There was a lot going on, the brass section was so beautifully coloured, a lot of rhythmic power, terrific orchestration generally speaking- Someone might say there was too much for such a small canvas but I thought it fitted really well. I was immensely impressed.”
