“There are only a handful of composers—a precious few—worldwide who have the expressive power, the creative artistry, to move and excite audiences on a consistent basis, and yet at the same time who write with such depth and integrity and sheer beauty that they earn the highest esteem of their professional colleagues. Edward Green is among them. In my opinion, high among them.”
