That was absolutely fantastic. It displayed a great deal of ingenuity and originality, whilst really keeping the feel of the works solid and intact.
There was such a strong sense of com-positional/arrangement structure and you knew exactly how to work the instruments for maximum effect, whilst retaining a freshness in sound. It is the first time since arriving in NZ that I have actually sat up and really taken note of an arrangement.
It just brought to life so much of what I have told compositional students over and over again …"You only have freedom to create something living and fresh once you have complete command of all the aspects of your craft!" Well, this was it!!!
Congratulations again. Absolutely awesome job and I will definitely look out for your work in future. Really impressed!"Beth
