review extracts: for full reviews click here
[This] new disc is everywhere infused with the spirit of [the composer's] home country. The result is a musical surface full of capricious interest. There is never a hint of banality. Fokkens also extracts considerable traction out of seemingly unpromising musical ideas. A highly rewarding programme of music. Christian Morris (Composition Today)
