The brilliant young composer Edward Rushton

Iain Burnside in The Guardian


An outstanding composer of the younger generation.
Barry Millington in the Evening Standard

A highly promising new voice in British opera.
Anna Picard in the Independent on Sunday

A marvellous piece, original in structure, both funny and moving.
Andrew Clements in the Guardian


Corrosively lyrical, jaggedly theatrical.
Geoff Brown in The Times


Rushtons Kompositionen überzeugen durch ihre Originalität, durch raffinierte, oft überraschende Klangfärbungen.

Christoph Schulte im Walde in Westfälische Nachrichten


Darf klassische Musik witzig sein? Wenn es nach Edward Rushton geht auf jeden Fall.
