Critics reviews

Mayfair’s picture feels like the work of a seasoned veteran rather than a newcomer, but this isn’t necessarily a compliment. It’s sensitively poetic and tremulously delicate to a fault, with every beat seemingly accompanied and underlined by an intrusive score from Ton That An which is heavily freighted with plangent strings and mournful piano notes.
