Helen Grime

Publisher: Chester Music

"[Grime] has as precise an ear as any contemporary composer I can think of..."  Paul Driver, The Sunday Times

"...Grime is a confident and persuasive colourist, generous but not profligate in her instrumentation, witty too. Small details made a big impact; the belated addition of a tuba to the bottom of the chord, baroque flurries of acciaccaturas and giddy trumpets..."  Anna Picard, The Times

"...her palette is all her own, weaving evocative, restless motives with cool insistence. She writes as though her music needs to be told..."  Kate Molleson, The Guardian
