Notes & Reviews:

Literary references are at the heart of Larry Goves's music: written for regular collaborator Sarah Nicolls and scored for solo piano, electric piano, prepared piano, large ensemble, electronic sounds and live processing, Goves explains that Things that are blue... is "my notion of a romantic piano concerto seen through the twisted lens of Paul Auster's surreal gumshoe landscape"; while the terminus wreck for solo cello is a a response to Paul Celan's poetry. Trends in personal relationships, performed by London Sinfonietta under Martyn Brabbins, is a response to modern life, relationships and internet dating.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2014
[Things that are...] is an eventful and gripping work, consummately well realised by Sarah Nicolls...the present release bolsters Goves's standing on the new music scene - and in no small measure.
