Review:
Accessibility and openness are important qualities in the music of Carl Vine. A young Australian with roots in a musical culture now firmly established on its own terms, he feels free to look both East and West for inspiration. Earlier scores like Café Concertino recall without irony the joie de vivre of Les Six, and find common ground with the modern styles of American minimalism.
[Nicholas Williams, Classic CD, Oct 1994]

Review:
The Vine concerto grosso moves from complexity . . . and then towards an instrumentally dazzling ending with such assurance and economy as to claim a classic status of its own. Here, in this intently held balance of means and ends, is music of a kind which might establish, rather than end, a genre. [Roger Covell, Sydney Morning Herald, June 17, 1991]

Review:
Elegy, an elegantly proportional act of remembrance . . . in which each gesture made its point in its own space. [Andrew Clements, London Financial Times, July 19, 1988] ... Carl Vine's Elegy had the trombone blasting its thrice-repeated chorale melody through hectic and heavy outbursts of organ and percussion. If meant to shock, it succeeded, presenting grief raw and unashamed, but the voice is a confident one, unencumbered by European doubts and inhibitors. [Robert Maycock,The Independent (UK), July 18, 1988] The true human voice speaking out this emotional farewell to a dead friend is readily understood and recorded. This is living music, spontaneous in its immediate communication and yet highly individual in its mode of expression. [Hans Forst, The Australian, Oct 21, 1986]

Review:
By far the most impressive new score of the program is Carl Vine's Sinfonia, a work of almost insolent assurance. Vine possesses the gift of knowing how to parcel out time in a musical sense. His thematic ideas carry us with them and his rhythmic episodes move and develop. [Roger Covell, Sydney Morning Herald, Sept 29, 1982]
