“A shock to the ears of the best kind”
The Observer
“…there prevails a consummate unity of sound and interpretation. They hear the significance of every single note, shape every phrase as a meaningful utterance… Thus the listener immediately felt directly addressed and enthralled, understanding without the need for more tangible or material content.”
