‘Darragh Morgan’s technique in For John Cage enables the high harmonics to exhibit iron security in conjunction with other-worldly fantasy. The recording is exemplary. The eschewing of vibrato on the violinist’s part also aids the projection of the purity so vital to this music’s success. All credit to Morgan and Tilbury for sustaining the tension for this extended span so creditably.’
