the flood, requiem

"His immediately convincing Requiem combines the Latin tradition with modern texts and recognizable, sometimes medieval musical forms. With a wealth of effective contrasts and relief in this music, The Flood is an enchanting requiem".

"
This composition testifies of an unprecedented mysticism. The Flood can now already be labelled as one of the greatest compositions of this time."

Moving the Barn

"The ponderous opening part pairs elegant piano patterns with plaintive string expressions, resulting in a melancholy and slightly mysterious whole. More rhythmically insistent is the third, where syncopated mallet and string patterns dance breezily, whereas the fourth concludes the release with Romantic string gestures and animated pulsing rhythms executed using both drums and percussion."
