Notes & Reviews:

"A new CD of music by the unprolific but much respected English composer George Benjamin (b.1960) is something of an event...A pupil of Messiaen, Benjamin is particularly welcome in France...One trait shared by both is the sensuous appeal of their writing...Also, both men demonstrate a mastery of scoring that is both original and infallibly apt at clarifying the potentially confusing melodic (albeit fascinating) melodic contents of their works...highly recommended." -Tuttle, Fanfare
