"The influence of contemporary North American acoustic guitar styles is very evident in Neil Currie's attractive three movement work, Tricroci..."
Don King in MUSE - Canberra Arts Monthly, June 2001.

Tim Kain, head of guitar studies at Australian National University in Canberra, Australia, has described the premiere: "It was great fun to play and sounds very beautiful on the instruments. The audience really loved it. It got terrific applause and then a lot of people singled it out as a program highlight when talking to people after the concert...thanks for what is a great new addition to our repertoire. We will certainly play it many more times in the years to come...".
