'Harvey has a magnificent ear for shimmering, startling color, and eerie harmonics seemed to magically hover all around the hall. The soprano Elissa Johnston sang with a sense of transfixing mystical rapture, and Steven Stucky conducted a performance of ravishing beauty.'
Los Angeles Times (Mark Swed) December 2000

'Harvey’s Song Offerings where poetry by Rabindranath Tagore becomes the occasion for a Wagnerian love-death delivered by an ecstatic soprano from out of a humming hive of instruments... creating an extended instant of joy, a marriage of sensuousness and calm.'
The New York Times (Paul Griffiths), 10 October 1997
