PLANET HUGILL, ROBERT HUGILL
"Throughout conductor Matthew Scott Rogers drew a glorious sense of drama from the players, along with moments of great delicacy. With such large and diverse forces to control (including a significant role for an off-stage band), Scott Rogers made an admirable traffic-policeman, yet also showed his commitment to the score by drawing out the fascinating textures and essential drama of the piece."
