"There was a shimmering, resonating orchestral opening statement that soon gave way to quieter, more fragmented pockets of sound, interrupted by occasional surges of dynamic sound."
Bruce Reader, The Classical Reviewer, August 20th 2014
"Resonating Sounds by the Israeli Ayal Adler proved to be a slithering, shimmering processional, confidently deploying a very large orchestra."
Nick Kimberly, The Evening Standard, August 21 2014
"Adler’s Resonating Sounds came from a far less familiar harmonic world, exploring abstract instrumental textures and effects in waves of glorious, shifting sound".
Alexandra Coghlan,The Independent,August 21 2014
