'Three Preludes' reviews

‘… an orchestration in the richest sense, going far beyond the confines of piano texture to produce a stunning new work.  The virtuosic ‘Ce qu’a vu le Vent d’Ouest’ received especially extravagant treatment, with vivid colouring that never became eccentric.  The result was so effective it is only surprising that Debussy did not think of it first.’
The Guardian (Pauline Fairclough), 13 October 2001
 
‘In the first performance of his [Matthews] exquisitely coloured scoring of Debussy’s piano Preludes, Matthews’s own voice manages to be evident in these immaculately crafted miniatures with their elusive, understated qualities and extraordinary orchestral sonorities.’
The Independent (Lynne Walker), 17 October 2001
