An exceptionally fine ear
He is a very fine musician
How much I admired it (Suffolk Rhapsody for cello and piano) and the excellent way the particular ´genius´ of the cello is used as an instrument.
Apart from the joy of hearing music beautifully played (The CD of An Intake of Breath)… , it is SO exquisitely, beautifully written.
He is one of the most creative pupils I have taught
I think your Oboe Quartet looks beautiful
I find it (The Symphony) most admirable.
What a superb piece it (the oboe quartet) is.
(An Intake of Breath)… A brilliant addition to the repertoire for the musical saw, written for leading exponent Harriet Longman. (Scottish Music Information Centre)
It (An Intake of Breath) was brilliant. Inspirational.
An Intake of Breath is so beautiful.
It (the Pied Piper) was extremely and effectively descriptive. A rich melodic introduction caught the attention and this moved into dramatic effects, especially the scurrying of rats…. but this was no gimmicky composition. It was expressively conceived and should be popular.
