"Performances are exceptional, which should come as no surprise given the participants"
American Record Guide
"This is a unique opportunity to observe one of the exceptional musicians of the 20th (and 21st) century refining his craft."
"Here is the essence of him: his precocious song-cycle symphony (No 2) and arresting Symphony No 3 (performed by the Philharmonia)… and that locus classicus of ensemble virtuosity, the five minute Coursing, with its long –sustained, leaping, complexly inflected unison line plausibly evoking Niagara Falls"
Sunday Times Culture magazine
"Knussen’s musical language is complex and post-serial, yet he has the knack of conjuring clarity, wit, emotion and memorability out of an idiom that produced so much forgettable cerebral sludge"
"...These were always definative performances and it is good to have them available once more - together with Knussen’s brief yet knotty tribute to Elliott Carter at 70, Coursing - in expert remasterings..."
Arnold Whittall - Gramophone magazine - January 2013
