"... a cello sound that gleams. Petr Limonov provides immaculately chiselled piano counterparts throughout."

“...The subtle, respectful orchestrations wrap around his [Finley] voice like a glove... Finley sings then all with his usual finesse and careful shading, reserving his full power for the few genuinely climatic moments, while alongside the songs Edward Gardner and his orchestra include very fine performances of three orchestral works. ..”   ****

“... A standout recording of 2017 – and it’s still only January.”

“... A standout recording of 2017 – and it’s still only January.”

"... Jane Irwin gives a fearless performance as Biskra, Damian Thantrey is bruised and swaggering as Guimard and Philip Sheffield is a sensitive Yusef. These are the same forces that gave the premiere: Ian Ryan conducting Music Co-OPERAtive Scotland, a collective of Scottish Opera's freelance orchestral players who clinch the taught, simmering angularity as well as the glittering refinement of Chisholm's ensemble-writing."
