“A mirror-fragment…” BBC SO Martyn Brabbins

“Exciting and assured, the 10-minute orchestral piece is rewarding whether you consider its poetic context or take the music by itself: either way, it thrills the ears and sends the imagination wild. Any orchestra worth its salt should take this work up.” – The Guardian


“. . . the 10-minute score proved a remarkably assured wielding of large orchestral forces — a predominantly tutti effect, but always bitingly precise, the idiom modernist, not minimalist, the argument vigorous and clear.” – The Sunday Times  


“ . . . fabulously rich and technically very accomplished” – Bachtrack


“. . . a striking (if not strikingly individual) work which augers well for Simpson’s future endeavours.” – Classical Source
