1. For trombone and orchestra /Bluesy and free
2. Double Percussion Concerto on a tune by Peter Erskine

Product Description

Fractured Lines, the first CD of music by Mark-Anthony Turnage on the Chandos label, features the premiere recordings of four of the composer's most recent orchestral works. "Another Set To" gets the disc off to an exhilarating start. Described by Turnage himself in the informative sleeve notes as "quite argumentative… optimistic and extrovert", "Another Set To" features trombone soloist Christian Lindberg whose growling yet extraordinarily agile playing goads and taunts the orchestra from start to finish.

"Silent Cities", inspired by a visit to the graveyards on the Somme and named after Kipling's description of that same place, is a far more sombre affair. In complete contrast, "Four-Horned Fandango" which follows on is a riotous tour de force for four horns and orchestra. Despite its title, it's not an overtly Spanish piece; rather it contains more subtle references such as the occasional castanet flutter and percussive strings.

The disc is rounded off with "Fractured Lines", Turnage's double percussion concerto which features Evelyn Glennie and Peter Erskine; two better soloists would be impossible to find. Based on a tune written by Erskine himself, the concerto is an energetic, nay unstoppable work. --Rebecca Agnew

5.0 out of 5 stars Dramatic stuff 19 Oct 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album came highly recommended and I would too. It's dramatic and powerfull. The combinatiuon of brass, rhythm and atmospherics makes it a dramatic and dynamic album. Be prepared for the neighbours to start banging on the wall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Horn Player's Dream 21 Feb 2008
By Banchreee - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I play French Horn, and have done so for many years. The first listen of Turnage's pieces in itself is absolutely amazing. The layering of the voices, and the dramatic subtones reach through and grab your attention as you move through each piece individually.

Then I listened to it again on the Shure SE530 headphonesShure SE530 Sound Isolating Earphones

This takes the pieces to a whole new level. You hear the subtleties hidden in the muddle of normal audio equipment, and truly begin to understand the piece as a whole.

The parts tear through each other revealing a new sound, and a new idea. It is a truly phenomenal experience to listen to these compositions.
