Press Quotes

"In The Woman and the Hare the text is shared between a soprano and a female reciter, each with her own musical speed. The relationship between the two elements constantly shifts, the soprano's ravishing contributions punctuate the speaker's delivery, sometimes taking off from an immediate idea, sometimes looping back to dwell upon an earlier image, and gradually filling out an expressive canvas that seems far larger than a 15-minute work can encompass."
The Guardian
