« […] de Luz has charisma in spades and accompanied by Urška Horvat’s on-stage musicianship, this becomes a characterful, often jaunty, duet between dancer and cellist. It was a highlight in an evening of many treasures. »

« The eventual winner (Urška Horvat) made an impact at once as someone passionately committed to the music. Master of her instrument technically, she used the resulting freedom to express her understanding of the music and her love of it. She was a serious player, and her absorption in the piece held the listener from the beginning. »

British composers Robin Holloway and Peter Seabourne have instantly recognisable, distinctive voices which readily communicate and place them apart from many of their contemporaries. Their piano trios, in quite different ways, are both masterworks worthy of a wide audience, combining beauty, energy, wit, elegance and passion. They are complemented by Holloway’s luminous “Moments of Vision”, described as a “song cycle for speaker”, written originally for Sir Peter Pears.
