'This is a remarkable work, a setting of Yeats’ "Long-Legged Fly", where Benjamin has found a newly expressive sound world - rasping colours in rich dissonant chords, pizzicato and tremolo effects. And in his use of the voice in hesitant parlando style, the claustrophobic nature of the poem is decisively captured.'
The Independent (Annette Morreau), 30 October 1996
