Christopher Wright/nicholas Barton: Orchestral Mus

Album cover art for upc 5060113444660
Catalog: TOCC0466

Andrews, John; Watkins, Richard; Royal Scottish National Orchestra

This album brings together music by two English composers who are also good friends –and both born in East Anglia: Nicholas Barton in Norfolk in 1950 and Christopher Wright in Suffolk in 1954. Moreover, they share a similar musical language: largely tonal, if loosely so, rhythmically alert, transparently but dramatically scored and with a natural feeling for symphonic argument and growth, and a powerful sense of scale. “Mark Forkgen and his versatile chamber choir Canticum are obviously fully committed to Wright’s music and have done him proud.” (Choir and Organ)
