  • "The Englishman, almost too controlled and reserved, painted vivid soul paintings in muted colours between the two poles of heartbreaking tragedy and courtly aplomb."
  • "In the twelve Etudes Opus 25 Cuthbertson works with sharp contrasts and achieves a dramatic concentration which is second to none."
