Press Quotes

"...the 20-minute piece opens with an effervescent opening theme that expands like bubbles rising to the surface, then jostles for supremacy with sudden interventions of Latin jazz. The slow central music is a limpid and deeply personal elegy to the composer’s mentor Hans Werner Henze, and contains some of the most unaffectedly beautiful music Turnage has written, the piano’s lullaby merging with the soft chimes of temple bells. The frenetic final movement doesn’t feature a cadenza so much as a barrelhouse breakdown: not all concert pianists can boogie with any great conviction, though Hamelin took it all in his stride."
The Guardian
