'Jonathan Harvey's clarinet-piano piece Be(com)ing gave us strength, variety and beauty, and you couldn't beat Brian Ferneyhough's bass clarinet blockbuster Time and Motion Study 1 for molten shrieks and burbles. Harper will be heard from again.' - Geoff Brown, The Times, January 11th 2008
'His firm, sweet sound impressed in Brian Elias's overcooked variations Birds Practise Songs in Dreams (2002) and Jonathan Harvey's fey Be(com)ing (1981), while Timothy Salter's itchy Mondrian Pictures (1997) and Brian Ferneyhough's irascible Time and Motion Study I (1977) showed intellectual and technical fearlessness.' - Anna Picard, The Independent on Sunday, January 13th 2008
