Notes and Editorial Reviews

This collection of premiere recordings from David Matthews features the Nash Ensemble, conducted by Lionel Friend. The ravishing Terrible Beauty, for mezzo-soprano and seven players, was composed in 2007 and sets both Homer and Shakespeare in a dramatic depiction of Cleopatra; its soloist is mezzo-soprano Susan Bickley; Winter Passions - which sets Pushkin's poems of love and absence - and Marina, a setting of TS Eliot's brooding monologue - both feature baritone Stephan Loges. The disc is completed with the clarinet Quartet and two string trios. This collection of premiere recordings from David Matthews features the Nash Ensemble, conducted by Lionel Friend.
