“Ferneyhough is leading the way in England in contemporary classical music by charting such uncharted musical waters as the works represented here. Not trying to make this easy, he likes pushing the envelope, making you pay attention to the journeys he takes everyone on.”
“A well-programmed selection...superbly performed by Ensemble Exposé. The superb Christopher Redgate’s....assured pyrotechnics make what is otherwise ferociously taxing music easier on the ear.”
“The performances are as persuasive as one has come to expect. The recorded sound is well-nigh ideal . Those unfamiliar with Ferneyhough’s chamber output could not hope for a better induction.”
International Record Review
“There is wit and an extreme version of sensuality built into his work, especially when experienced live... This composer’s music looks fearsome on the page, but to the ear it’s accessible. The meaning is what matters, and Ferneyhough says his music is about “life.” I’d agree: life as it’s lived, thought about, struggled with, reconsidered. Ferneyhough collectors will want all Ferneyhough CDs, including this one.”
“More immediately attractive alternative to existing versions. The string ensemble is more incisive and more crisply recorded here. Taken overall it’s an attractive package.”
