Notes and Editorial Reviews

Mark Simpson became the first ever winner of both the BBC Young Musician of the Year and BBC Proms/Guardian Young Composer of the year competitions at the age of 17. Simpson was appointed Composer in Association with the BBC Philharmonic 2015-19. The works on this new release span over 10 years and all are performed by the musicials and ensembles for whom they were originally written. Simpson's works are most often inspired by dark tones, an atmosphere of loss, dreams, hauntings, intimacy and passion. He often embraces ambiguities of emotion and attitude with extremes of quiet as well as agitation.
