“Strangely exploratory yet masterfully controlled, and immediately attractive, utterances.”  —Sunday Times

 

“[Sotto voce Notturno] explores a strange hybrid world that has one foot in the 18th century, the other firmly in Rihm's own time. It's full of beautiful, elusive sounds, with slowly changing, delicate textures. [Sotte voce 2 Capriccio] returns to that world, but to view it from a much more agitated, anguished perspective. Played together they make a perfectly balanced form, and the soloist Nicolas Hodges plays them with perfectly judged transparency and tact.”  —The Guardian
