Turnage: A Constant Obsession
Format: COMPACT DISC
Chamber Domaine; Kemp, Thomas; Spence, Nicky
As one of the most celebrated composers of his generation, Mark-Anthony Turnage has written a great number of large- scale orchestral works and operas. His contribution to the chamber genre is equally impressive and significant, and Chamber Domaine, with their conductor and artistic director Thomas Kemp, here present a selection of world premiere recordings of Turnage’s chamber works composed in recent years. Included in the programme is the characterful piano quartet Three for Two, the compelling piano trio A Slow Pavane, the varied Four Chants for violin and piano as well as the energised Grazioso! for ensemble. Tenor Nicky Spence features in the title work of the album: A Constant Obsession.
