  • I was never so moved by a piece of music, just divine. Loved it. Being moved is an understatement. From start to finish I was captivated by the beautiful music, the singing the ensemble and indeed it was and when the choir gathered it was just divine. I cried, I smiled and felt really connected to the different movements in the music and the involvement of such a range of instruments and voices. Humanity is indeed in a good place! Thanks for a special evening.

  • There can be no doubting the creative ambition of this multifaceted, hour-long Odyssey, which grabbed and held its large audience’s attention from first note to last. Hhumann X is immediately engaging, yet promises to reward repeated listening. It represents yet another triumph for its energetic and versatile creator.
    — Prof. Francis Pott
  • That as a triumph. Deeply moving.
    — Jane Clinton
  • A transformative experience. I’m attracted to composers who blend acoustic instruments with electronics but seldom have I heard this done with such exquisite subtlety. A very unique and moving musical journey.
    — Dr Tim Sayer
  • An intensely moving experience. The music evoked perfectly the desperation of loneliness and the human yearning for connectedness. Tears came to my eyes when the choir sang, perfectly demonstrating the redemptive power of belonging through music. Hhumann X is a potent tribute to the memory of my dear friend, Jo Cox.
    — Seema Kennedy MP
  • A beautiful musical ‘tour de force’. It was yet another triumph of the imagination which drew us all out of our various proverbial ‘boxes’ and took us on a journey into a different ‘soul-sphere’. A beautiful gift - thank you!
    — Diana Blakeney
  • Congratulations on such a fabulous concert, I admire your courage as you are one of the few artists that dare to expose what is hidden. Most artists do what sells and they never really nourish their souls. I find your music is a calling into the void and unknown, where few dare to tread. It is the Union of all things touched and untouched, seen and unseen, heard and unheard. Where we recognize ourselves in all our glory. It’s magical and genius and I salute you.
    — Lady Marina Cowdray
  • I just wanted to say how wonderful your concert was, beautiful beautiful music, a triumph. All the friends that went absolutely loved the recital and have been raving about your music.
    — Jose Fonseca
  • An hour long, and an hour too short. I, like the audience, was left wanting it not to end. Hhumann X extends traditional boundaries balancing beautiful female voices over and above exquisite violin, cello, and piano whilst supporting with such a strong sense of rhythm and beat. I had to fight the urge to dance in my seat.
    — Jamie Lonsdale
  • It’s hard to say logically or analytically what it was about the concert, but something touched me deeply. The lighting, the choreography, the singing, the instruments, yes, but it was more the sum of those parts which transported me through an experience which has still not left me, days later. I would say it connected me to what’s really important in life. It connected me to my soul. And to the collective soul of humanity.
    — Lady Louisa Compton
  • Hhumann X gently embraces you and pulls on your heart before you know it. Beautiful, uplifting, fascinating and intriguing! It will stay with me a very long time, in the very best way - with mind & heart engaged.
    — Angelique Mohring

    — Tamasea Lambis
  • It was transcending. The women’s’ voices, the orchestra, percussion and all aspects of your composition was completely uplifting. I sailed off into the night transported.
    — Tina Mackenzie
  • A truly extraordinary and exceptional oeuvre and performance. A complex masterpiece sophisticatedly combining a broad spectrum of genres into a truly unique and mesmerising experience that leaves you feeling ecstatic.
    — Robin Sturken
  • Spine-tingling. I was moved throughout the concert and a sense of reflection was felt amongst the audience. I was blown away.
    — Sophie Cahn
  • Hhumann X transported me to an incredibly happy place. I dreamt of myself flying my paraglider over the Highlands of Scotland as I listened to Toni’s exquisite composition. It was awesomeness.
    — Quentin Holland
  • Totally unique...unforgettable and very enjoyable experience.
    — Inga Pivena
  • Hhumann X lifted us to another dimension!
    — James Nichols
  • Emotional and fantastic!!
    — Andrea Alinovi
  • The soaring visionary euphoria of The Fifth Element with discordant reminders of a (very) possible dystopian future à la 28 Days later. Hhumann X was a journey into the futuristic heart of light and darkness.
    — Patrick Drake
  • From the beat of the heart to the voices of the angels through the simplicity of wood on wood and the technicality of computers and electronic beats. Toni has created what can only be described as a journey of darkness shown the light. A magical experience that left me smiling! Congratulations!
    — Lee Atkins
  • Transcendent.
    — Robert Shaw Cameron
  • What a spectacular event! I particularly enjoyed the improvisatory elements between piano and guitar, and the mixture of textures in sound. It was really moving to see the whole choir join at the end - no wonder there was a standing ovation!
    — Clare Menor
  • Hhumann X was truly an experience...immediately we were taken into a different world, from the atmospheric orchestration of string instruments, electric guitar and electro beats and synths to the siren-like sopranos and the incredibly moving and uplifting choral finale. Castells strikes just the right chords!
    — Robert Barbaro
  • Such a beautiful and deeply moving piece of music. The concert was utterly wonderful, I feel privileged to have been there.
    — Effie Hicks
  • Incredible music.
    — Katerina Hicks, 12
  • Thank you for an incredible evening...effortless in bringing in classical instruments and electronic music and sounds, it’s really rare that this happens so that it sounds like it always was intended this way.
    — Erik Holzinger
  • Hhumann X was a highly enjoying experience that glued us to the magic of musical interconnection between cultures! My friend and I will remember the event for times to come.
    — Shahram Javid

    — Uta Brouet
  • A warming bath of light. Beautiful and uplifting.
    — Isabel Baron

    — Sara Evans-Lacko
  • I don’t know what it was, I can’t describe that feeling, it was as if the music was bringing me closer to God.
    — Johan Asadizadeh
  • Beautiful and moving music, combined with brilliant artistic performance. I thoroughly enjoyed it. A special moment in the performance was when the More Than Just A Choir group rose from among the audience and entered the stage. It underlined the humanity in the composition.
    — Behrang Noohi
  • I was so deeply impressed by it. The music was intense and emotional and not very easy to sit through all the time, despite its moments of sheer ecstatic beauty. The choir moment when they stood up from the audience was breathtaking! And the music itself had groove and coolness, I found myself “dancing” in my seat many times, then holding my breath, and being overwhelmed... It worked. It struck a personal chord. I don’t know how and why, but it worked.
    — Sabina Andron
  • Such an incredible concert...feels delicious to be flooded with all that sonic beauty, hugest hugest congratulations.

    — Annabel Gerbi
  • Mesmerising...From the start when the hypnotic drumming of a musical heart beat drew the audience in, we were taken on a musical journey, the whole composition came together to produce a very unified work. I felt very privileged to have been at the premiere of such an important musical work.
    — Jessie Atack

    — Charlie Evans
  • We were blown away!! It was pure magic! It made my heart sore! And I didn’t feel the loneliness was sad - I felt it was strong and powerful - as if it was a decision to be that way. And then a journey to come together and to connect. And when it finally did it felt harmonious and majestic! It was an honour and privilege to be there for the first public performance!
    — Helen Park-Weir

    — Mirela Van Eijndhoven
  • Hauntingly beautiful music, ethereal and otherworldly, interspersed with the moments of great power and innovative musical genius. Toni’s work moves the audiences deeply with the undercurrent message of personal and societal significance. His finely attuned awareness of the human condition, translated through his exceptional musical sensibility, transports the listener into the unknown and unexplored realms. Well deserved standing ovation at the end. Thank you Toni, may you continue to enrich and enthrall us for many years to come.
