The painter Robert Ryman said that whatever is made should delight and have a rightness about it. That was my aim.

Review quote

There is a layer of ironic detachment, but it is overwhelmed by a manic intensity of expression, often in gleeful dance rhythms driven by some raging demon. * Robert Maycock, The Independent * The work has a definite personality and intent . . . There's much to enjoy here. If you've the patience and go for the brittleness of the texture, this quartet could be a valuable addition to the small but rich repertoire for this combination. * Piano, Sept 97 *
