scores for La Biennale de Venezia 2004, BBC Singers 2010, numerous scores for BBC TV and Radio

as Nikola Kodjabashia” Guardian (2 july 2004)
"Kodjabashia is doing little that's new - merely variations on a theme - but the result, drawing
on every musical language from modernism to Shadowslike twang, is masterful” Guardian (2 May 2008)
