Reviews

Black Waltz by Roydon Tse displayed intense fragments of gesture exquisitely layered to create a sound world best described as “if Ives went dancing to the waltz,” showing off impeccable control of structure and orchestration.

Kevin Baldwin – I Care if You Listen

The concert opened with contemporary pieces entitled Three Musings by prodigious Canadian composer Roydon Tse. I was immediately impressed by the delicacy and elegance with which the orchestra handled Tse’s almost Mozartian orchestral transparency.

Sean Farrell – Prince George Citizen
