“an effortlessly elegant re-imagining of the sonata form”
“effervescence and song … a beguiling, hugely attractive work”
"devastatingly impassioned... a beautifully direct aesthetic"
"generating emotion... beautifully supple, brooding and majestically soaring"
(The Australian, 2014)
“Williams has a spectacularly evolved gift for tapping into a universally shared pathos that speaks to an audience, even on a single hearing, with profundity and depth. Natalie Williams has duly written a deeply poignant, thought provoking, and richly expressive work.”
(Limelight Magazine, 2015)
“…a beautiful work, shimmering with atmosphere and colour, played extremely well by the orchestra” (Canberra Critics Circle, 2017)
"Natalie Williams' work the highlight... bristling with harmonic and rhythmic complexity" (The Advertiser, 2014)
"Headlines, story, music and archival footage combine into a dramatic, almost filmic, experience"
