“… a complex web of sound that delights and fascinates the ear”
The Times (John Allison), 14 September 1998

“Packed with detailed, fascinating invention, Adès has devised a piece calling for the utmost, but fine-grained, virtuosity. It is also unselfconsciously, elegantly funny music - witty in the way that Scarlatti or Haydn can be.”
The Observer Review (Andrew Porter), 15 September 1996

“In four fantastic minutes, it’s constantly reinventing itslef. Adès seemingly never reproduces the same sound twice. He has a dazzling future.”
The Independent (Edward Seckerson), 14 September 1998
