Press Quotes

“The exceedingly fine Violin Concerto No.2 is an excellent example of the success of his approach. Both Eastern and Western idioms appear, undiluted, yet the concerto sounds as a cohesive whole… gorgeous central slow movement [Sitar Concerto No. 2], heavy with intoxicating perfumes” (Records International)
