Kevin Duggan


„Sinfonia Nordica” achives a balance between content, form and expression that is compelling and highly original.” ²
„For me, the high points of the concert where Kevin Duggan’s own compositions… (Deus, Deus Meus) displayed Duggan’s Brittenesque flair for vocal writing, dramatic contrasting textures, the disarming beauty of interweaving instrumental lines over mesmeric rocking and swaying harmonies.” ³
