music that shimmers with precisely calculated orchestral colour, which has vividly depictive power, … but unfailingly guides its listeners through its drama. In other words, it's accessible, and designed to take an audience on a musical journey from the first time you hear one of her pieces.— Tom Service, Financial Times

 

creates an astonishing tapestry of sound — Christopher Lambton, BBC Music Magazine

 

thoroughly contemporary while remaining true to her tonal roots. It’s a thrilling rollercoaster of invention — Julian Haylock, Classic FM Magazine

 

has her own harmonic language, and a precise ear for color, and local color. Her music is imaginative, clear and direct, but never predictable. It is also inspiring — Richard Dyer, Globe

 

She has distilled a lifetime of compositional experience into an idiom that's individually and uncompromisingly hers but also speaks directly to her listeners. Her music communicates on the most immediate level, because it's often so sheerly pleasurable to listen to. Yet it also has deeper structural and emotional levels of poetry. --Tom Service, Financial Times

 

I found myself .. rapt in the music, intent on the movement of the melodic lines, calmed or excited by the shifting patterns of harmonic tension, and stirred by the colors of the score. There is visionary quality in 'Mary'...— Andrew Porter, The New Yorker 

 

Thea Musgrave has that rare gift of being able to create characters who are musically as well as dramatically viable; to create and maintain dramatic tension; and to write music that is at once original and at the same time easily accessible — Harold Rosenthal, Opera

 

What distinguishes her oeuvre is its craftsmanship and sense of dramatic pace. Her orchestral pieces are atmospheric but clear-headed, their polished surface masking a gritty sense of colour and argument  – Andrew Clark, Financial Times

 

Her writing for voice is as satisfying to listen to as it must be to sing...this a twentieth century grand opera, and it works. — Rodney Milnes, Spectator

 

a personal voice that commands respect…... What distinguishes her oeuvre is its craftsmanship and sense of dramatic pace. Her orchestral pieces are atmospheric but clear-headed, their polished surface masking a gritty sense of colour and argument.  -- – Andrew Clark, Financial Times

 

Musgrave is a musical dramatist par excellence…. seethes with dramatic incident… the long-limbed gorgeous romanticism of spring, which becomes as ardent as Strauss; and the unstoppable, hectic, racing momentum of her celebration of summer – at subtly depicting high-velocity action, she is almost without parallel— Michael Tumelty, Glasgow Herald

 

The orchestration has a Straussian depth and complexity, swept along by a romantic undercurrent that is enthralling but unpredictable— Christopher Lambton, BBC Music Magazine
