".. an alluringly blended sound of great plasticity that appears to throb and breathe like a living organism. [Forest] maintains a poetic tension throughout."
The New York Times
“[Between Worlds] may be an operatic debut, but it announces Tansy
Davies as the most original new voice in the game.”
This is not polite, deferential music, it has grit and wit.
“Davies’s score is a fabulously inventive aural fabric: exploding shards of sound frozen in a kind of cosmic aspic.”
The Evening Standard
"Davies at times reaches that place of emotional embodiment that only music can capture, and wraps it in a dark yet cathartic embrace."
The Arts Desk
"Davies has composed a tension-filled and incident-packed piece that goes beyond the potential showmanship of the title; indeed it is deep and thought-provoking.
Forest is dedicated to Salonen and sustains its twenty-three minutes compellingly and with satisfaction ... hopefully it will soon be recorded."
