Reviews

“Crossman allows the music of the Pacific, specifically of Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Filipino traditions, to influence his more or less high modern attention to sound color and sound space…something spaciously Asian but with an effectively communicative vocabulary of Western new music…Crossman is a real force for the present-future.”

(Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review, USA, May 18, 2017)

“The wealth of musical activity in Pacific rim countries is clearly a source of inspiration to Crossman, adding a fascinating dimension to music from a European heritage. His discerning blend of East and West creates an intriguing, kaleidoscopic sonic world, one that carries a strong emotional impact… Gentleness-Suddenness is described by Crossman as a “meditation on love and creativity”, settings of texts from Chinese opera tradition of Kunqu (The Peony Pavilion) and Judeo-Christian Biblical texts from Genesis, Psalms, Song of Songs and Revelation. Given those inspirational sources, it is not surprising that this piece is a tour-de-force.”

(The Music Trust, Australia, July 3, 2017)
