Reviews

‘Travelling at a frenetic pace in this performance, the first of three movements was a soundscape of rapidly chattering and clipped articulations on a mix of cymbals that included the hi-hat. This was pitted against a choppy counterpoint of driving rhythms and explosive orchestral outbursts that exuberantly bounced off the walls. In this zany, pastiche of film music, folk, jazz and blues crammed within a classical frame, the brass players wallowed in their attention-seeking scooping, whining choruses so clearly removed from their traditional role of contained support. Daring colours included a jazzy slapped bass and grimacing woodwind cries, ending with the soloists improvising a brushed cadenza on the tam-tam. “Good Vibes”, by contrast, was a tuneful excursion that floated the swimming resonance of the vibraphone on a surface of marbled, tranquil strings.’ The Australian (Gillian Wills), 6th March 2006
