Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
A triptych of Thea Musgrave's works in wonderful performances from all concerned... Songs for a Winter's Evening is an endearing song cycle charting a woman's life and loves through text by Robert Burns. It draws on the tunes for Burns's verses, yet these are unmistakably, and beautifully contemporary reminiscences, sung exquisitely by Lisa Milne.

Gramophone Magazine
Musgrave's... response to a group of Turner's painting in Turbulent Landscapes is a triumph: cogently structure yet uninhibitedly pictorial encapsulations of these canvases which manage to be economical, witty and distinctively expressive all at the same time. All three live performances come across well in recordings that bring out Musgrave's myriad instrumental felicities.
