“…Mark-Anthony Turnage… is one of the most distinctive sound worlds in modern music. The four orchestral works on the LPO disc are full of the driven, dancing rhythms, the garishly brilliant or darkly sensuous instrumental colours, the floating, improvisatory melodic lines, the brittle humour and nervous melancholy that instantly shouts (or whispers) 'Turnage'.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2005 ****

“All credit to the LPO for compiling a whole evening of Turnage. You may not always like what he does or how he does it but his instantly recognisable voice is well served by the blunt immediacy of the sound and the obvious flair of the performances.” Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010
