"I unreservedly praise the composer's vision, imagination, awareness of colour and extremely skilful use of the orchestra. This is a piece I want to hear again and again."
Declan Townsend - The Irish Examiner
“The piece I most want to hear again is Perkin's; the composer's playful, teasing writing got fully under the skin.”
Michael Dervan - The Irish Times
