5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks NMC, 23 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: John Casken: Orion over Farne (Audio CD)
This is about Casken's ORION OVER FARNE.
At last this wonderful piece of orchestral music is available on CD.
It has been broadcast a few times on BBC Radio 3 (I have a cassette recording of the 1984 pemière) but I could never understand why it was not recorded for CD release. Now here it is - after 30 years. Wonderful. It is a sheer joy from beginning to end. Casken takes the listener on a journey which is full of emotion, ever changing, ever inventive. I find it truly amazing that the human brain can create such complex yet beautiful art. John Casken is one of England's greats.
The performance by the Hallé is excellent; a great recording. (It was actually recorded on my 65th birthday. I wish I could have been there.)
