MARK-ANTHONY TURNAGE b 1960 Twice Through the Heart, Hidden Love Song, The Torn Fields
Three works by the London Philharmonic Orchestra's Composer in Residence Mark-Anthony Turnage offer strikingly different glimpses of the human interface: a chilling first-person account of marital murder, a touchingly titled musical gift and an acerbic view of the destruction of war. Works of acute craft and insight are captured here with vivid drama in performance under Marin Alsop.
