Amadeus National Theatre 2017"like a restless organism that cannot itself be stilled, the superb musical director is Simon Slater" Matt Wolf, New York Times
Simon is an award-winning composer of over 300 original scores for theatre, film, television and radio.
As an actor he is a familiar face on British television, as well as having appeared in films and many critically-acclaimed theatre productions in London and abroad.
"...an epic piece of music-theatre...stunning."
"...vibrant...Throughout the production, the Sinfonia plays multiple extracts from Mozart, occupying the capacious stage like a restless organism that cannot itself be stilled; the superb musical director is Simon Slater. At various moments, we hear bits of a distinctly modern-day beat as if to signal the avant-gardist that Mozart was considered in his day."
"When Simon Slater's musical direction and the Sinfonia all merge in the final Requiem sequence, the drama becomes as towering as the music."
"...thrillingly fresh and imaginative...the Southbank Sinfonia are integrated into the play to stunning effect."
""...note-perfect.... Simon Slater has provided additional music, to create a flow of incidental (and often wryly pointed) accompaniment."
"...productive, thrilling, daringly imaginative…Simon Slater’s musical compositions echo and shimmer with Bizet"
"It takes a certain kind of genius to create a century full of characters...and give each a distinctive voice and a fully formed personality...It's hard to imagine any single reader's imagination performing as well."
"...a gorgeous little thriller, performed alone by the remarkable Simon Slater."
