AUDIO REVIEWS

'This collection of chamber pieces shows that Smalley has certainly made his peace with the great tradition that he and so many of his contemporaries rejected in their youth... But the result is never tired neo-romanticism, but far more bracing, for Smalley has refracted that harmonic and gestural world through his own principles of organisation, creating a genuine and highly personal tension between that background and his invention.' The Guardian
