'Stars' review

'Matthews builds up fascinating choral clusters whose diatonic feeling is offset by chromatic brass chords and woodwind roulades of breathtaking sensuality…In Stars the dangers inherent in Matthews’s style, those of emotional excess and textural overelaboration, are avoided with complete success.  The result is a work of real vision and sure technique…'
Tempo (Douglas Young), Spring 1971
