William Dougherty, writing in Tempo magazine, has reviewed Jonathan Nangle’s new album, Pause. He singles out the performances for particular praise: –
“Featuring superb performances, fittingly full of clarity, transparency and an admirable attention to detail, Pause is a testament to the artistry of Ireland’s Crash Ensemble.”
– and quotes art critic Jonathan Jones in his final words on the album as a whole: “Time-freezing, somber and ecstatic”.
Pause has already receieved much critical since it’s release in summer 2017, including a five-star review in Classical Ear, where it was described as “elasticated interruption, momentary stillness disturbed and broken by unexpected disturbances both glancing and reiterated, random and meaningful”.
