John Croft


...che notturno canta insonne was premiered by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under Ilan Volkov on 2 May 2015.

'a perfect integration of instrumental properties and electronics ... a fragile equilibrium in which tension and virtuosic quality is felt during the entire composition'

   (Jury, Prix Ton Bruynèl 2012)

'...a soundworld of ghostly resonances and faint musical breaths.'

   (Matthew Connolly, The Times)

'Croft vastly expands the world within and without the instrument ... heart-achingly beautiful ... like stepping onto another world ...'

   (Tim Rutherford-Johnson)

'...dusky hues and microtonal conflict, like entering the musical twilight zone.'

   (Kenneth Walton, The Scotsman)
