"Anderson’s stunning orchestral technique assures that the ear and mind are continually stimulated. Oliver Knussen ... conducts ... with passion and conviction, drawing virtuoso playing from the London Sinfonietta ... and the BBC Symphony Orchestra."
Victor Carr Jr - ClassicsToday.com, August 2006
"The big orchestral canvases show Anderson’s priceless gift for making complex formal shapes totally lucid. Oliuver Knusson’s beautifully integrated performances with both the BBC Symphony and the Sinfonietta help inestimably, too."
Andrew Clements - BBC Music Magazine August 2006
"For more than a decade British composer Julian Anderson has been consolidating his reputation as a leading talent. This first CD shows that talent at full stretch. The music is always direct in its tone of voice and unfailingly approachable."
Arnold Whittal - Gramophone - September 2006
