Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
Would that all musical postmodernism were as intriguing and provocative as this.

BBC Music Magazine
Ayres's approach appears to reflect Mahler's wish to include everything, but in its episodic spirit Ayres's music comes across as Janacek for the 21st century and, like both composers, it is richly exhilarating...Trumpeter Marco Blaauw and horn-player Wim Timmermans are excellent soloists.
