Reviews

'There’s mystery too in the music’s spicy harmonic clashes, and poetic melancholy. Benjamin’s subtle additions of muted horn and layerings of orchestral colour gently heightened all this, without losing the music’s essential muted gravity – a remarkable feat of artistic empathy as well as skill'
The Telegraph (Ivan Hewett), 31 August 2021
