Perfectly calculated sonorities; more than in any of Hoyland’s music I have heard so far the content and the structure are fused; it is also extremely beautiful.
Andrew Clements, Financial Times.

Hoyland’s new work for Lontano made a strong and original impression. Wave after wave of events sped on their way, coming to rest finally in a haze of muted trumpet, flute, clarinet, and rippling vibraphone: delicately insistent, rather beautiful.
Dominic Gill, Financial Times
