Peter Eotvos press reviews

"Like any opera, Eötvös's Angels has to stand on its own feet, dramatically and musically, and to judge by the UK premiere at the Barbican, it manages that convincingly... this is high-class music theatre." (The Guardian, March 2010)

“With the composer himself on the podium, a chamber ensemble in the pit, a full symphony orchestra behind a dark gauze at the back of the stage, and a superbly matched cast of first-rate soloists, the odds were stacked towards success. And indeed, the 110-minute work was flawlessly performed and warmly received by a full house… Eötvös has written an immediate and engaging work, the vocal lines eminently singable, the orchestration full of small jokes, descriptive effects and beautiful soundscapes.” (Financial Times, February 2010)

Composer, conductor, teacher – “His is a music which must be experienced live. Even more important, one must pay attention to every note, every movement, every gesture. This music, while stunningly beautiful at times, is neither reverie nor comfort. It is a music memory and sorcery and produces ever-increasing awe.” (Concertonet.com, January 2009)
