"The whole virtuosity of mechanical
organs and a seducting and compelling
melody. A perfect master."
"A complete orchestra, well
rendered, a well-adjusted score, a
lively and cheerful piece, what else?"
"Excellent work. Congratulations
for this piece full of freshness, that
immerses us in a funfair.

"Nice atmosphere for this piece that
gives the impression to be in 3D. It
sounds like a music box from somewhere
Remarkable design. Intrumentation and
settings are superb."

dynamics would have deserved to be
notated on score.
An exciting and pleasant score."
Wins a Myriad
"This piece is full of good ideas
quite well achieved. The score layout
is very original and the rendering
pleasant to listen."
"Very evocative music and
wonderment for all the listeners.
The score scrolls with nice
pictures, as in a children's book.
Excellent quality of settings and
"Nice musicality and topic
matching, good panning wit only a few
instruments. The shakuhachi is
well used and well rendered.
Too bad that the score hasn't
been taken care of to its end and that
the miscellaneous embellishments
(character font, pictures...) harm the
readability a bit."
