Gramophone Magazine

January 2011

“If 1950s modernism brings you out in spots, there's nothing to fear from Mantra. The relatively conventional push-pull of Stockhausen's expressive arcs mixes with what I find, personally, a less appealing atmosphere of quasi-religious ritual; crotales ring changes, like mapping out a liturgy.”

Sunday Times

26th September 2010

****

“it is highly colourful (electronics make the music often seem to come from underwater), theatrical, humorous (Doctor Who enters at track 15) and wise. Captivating.”

The Guardian

2nd September 2010

****

“The electronic ring modulation adds another layer, sometimes just subtly enhancing the piano timbres, sometimes adding a much more astringent edge. This is the first recording on which those effects have been achieved digitally...this is a highly accomplished presentation of one of the landmark pieces in the second half of the 20th century.”
