“Saturday evening saw a programme of chamber works in the Purcell Room, including the slightly anarchic shenanigans of David Breeze’s ‘Mixed Doubles’, a quirky but entertaining pygmy horn concerto.”
Laurence Hughes, The Independent 19 April, 2000
“the Elysian Quartet took on a challenging assignment in a Society for the Promotion of New Music concert on 7 December. In the witty ‘Voices’, by David Breeze, the quartet plays along - literally - to a pre-recorded domestic tiff. Performed with the Elysians’ sharp musical and technical reflexes, it had the audience in stiches.”
