A Sheen of Dew on Flowers reviews

Reviews from A Sheen of Dew on Flowers at Barbican Hall:

Classical Source

"Talbot's word-setting is intuitive and speech-based, something that both singers conveyed with admirable clarity, and the many strongly characterised choral contributions from the twenty-five strong Britten Sinfonia Voices showed off his considerable skill at creating balance and vocal perspectives."

Financial Times

"Talbot's music played directly into the hands of the Britten Sinfonia Voices and the brilliant soloists, mezzo-soprano Kelley O'Connor and baritone Tobias Greenhalgh, whose impassioned, vocally lustrous performances ensured that this world premiere made its mark."
