Product Description

Seven world premiere recordings from outstanding British composing talent. The programme is performed by various combinations of leading British group The Nash Ensemble, with solo performances from violist Lawrence Power, Ian Brown, Gareth Hulse, Paul Watkins and outstanding British soprano Sally Matthews.

The CD contains a wide range of chamber works written between 1992 and 2004. Eulogy for viola and ensemble is being performed at Den Haag, Netherlands and Worcester UK in March 2006.

Review

Even if I hadn't known that the opening work on Turnage: This Silence (ONYX4005)) was inspired by a Jon Silkin poem about grief I could easily have sussed the complexion of its narrative from just listening. That's the great thing about Turnage: he invites you straight in - you never feel the awkward chill of distance, even in the few instances where the octet "This Silence" turns complex or knotty. First to sound is the horn. The strings follow on, before the mood intensifies and a sort jazz lament brings us down to street level. Just before the seven-minute mark, a heartbreaking descent for solo strings takes over - as if escape is no longer viable and grief needs to be confronted head on. There's dancing, too, in this marvellous piece - weird fidgety dancing, more nervous than celebratory - while in "L'invitation au Voyage" (with soprano Sally Matthews) Turnage beckons us to a world of bliss much as Duparc had done many years earlier. Other works programmed - including the punchy "Slide Stride" for piano and string quartet - grab your attention like a novel you can't put down. It might seem strange to say this, but wherever you join Turnage's work, he spins the uncanny illusion that he's listening to you as intently as you are to him. --The Independent,6 December 2005
