“I have now worked with Paul Lovatt-Cooper for some 12 years and found him to be an outstanding percussionist and a highly skilled composer - in fact, a true all-round musician.

His playing has contributed to major contest victories by both Fairey and Black Dyke bands and his latest compositions reveal him to be one of the most exciting composers on the brass band scene today.”

“Paul Lovatt-Cooper is a composer who possesses considerable talent. He has already become a major force in writing new works for the brass world and in my opinion this will continue to be the case. Paul’s works are most original and he has something new to say regarding brass band composition. I have been delighted to commission Paul twice for major works for brass band in the last year. Each time Paul's compositions have received wide critical acclaim.”

“Paul is a breath of fresh air in the Brass Band Movement and we should capitalise on his extraordinary talents as much as possible before he inevitably moves on to different musicals spheres. All the music I have worked on and played by Paul Lovatt-Cooper  is absolutely fantastic.”

This is indeed a rare talent, especially in one so young. His compositional style and innovative ideas seem to be breaking new ground with every new project. As both a conductor and a presenter it is always a pleasure to work with, or to comment on, his work.”
