“There’s a lean and translucent quality to their sound that’s particularly successful in “The Birds”, in which the scoring is so deft and agile. Trittico Botticelliano is a masterpiece of ingenious orchestration. Interpretations of both are wonderfully detailed, and the youthful orchestra plays well.” – Radio New Zealand, July 6, 2014, Robert Johnson
