In Damascus picked up excellent reviews in both the Guardian and the Financial Times, following its London premiere at the Sacconi's 15th birthday concert at Kings Place last July. The Guardian awarded the concert five stars, describing it as "unusual and timely", with a libretto that is "both simple and direct, without any hint of rhetoric or sensation". Mark Padmore was praised for his "immaculate artistry", and the Guardian concluded that "The overall impact of the work and its performance was profound, an unforgettable example of the power of art to convey something terrible through an expression that is paradoxically in itself beautiful."
"As ever, Dove writes well for the voice and tenor Mark Padmore was very expressive in his music, the many high-lying lines floated in a head voice reminiscent of Britten’s writing for Peter Pears. For the Sacconi Quartet this was an anniversary celebrated in some style." - Financial Times (concert review)
