Some  comments from critics:

“Wondrous to experience….yet another fine entrant in this series.”  

“Strange but profoundly haunting…totally beguiling.”

“A tremendously eerie effect, pardoxically becoming more atmospheric as the silence intrudes more and more..”

“One of my favourite pieces of music heard over the past several years…Just a phenomenal recording.”

Congratulations to Frank Denyer, who was just won a Paul Hamlyn composer award. His music is unorthodox and genuinely unique, often involving the building of new instruments.

Another Timbre has released two CDs of Frank’s music - one with compositions for shakuhachi, and one of recent chamber pieces (see below). Two more CDs are planned for release in 2019.
