Silence of the Night

British composer JEFFREY LEWIS has produced some absolutely stunning music – modernist in some ways but always reaching out to the listener – deeply spiritual and hauntingly beautiful, especially the wonderful Silentia Noctis for soprano and piano. Anyone wanting a perfect introduction to the best of contemporary music should look no further.

What The Critics Are Saying…

Utterly intriguing. This marvellous collection of works for clarinet, performed by the excellent Heather Roche, certainly exemplifies the composer’s intense, playful and endlessly exploratory musical voice. Performance 5/5 Recording 5/5

” —Kate Wakeling, BBC Music Magazine

I have always found much to enjoy and admire in Christopher Fox’s music. Heather Roche is a superb advocate for Fox’s clarinet works. Fascinating timbral contrasts. It is difficult to imagine Metier’s recorded sound could be improved.

CLASSICAL CD OF THE WEEK. McLachlan fires off hardcore firecrackers right out of his hand. He’s off and away, wildly pouncing through the tumultuous passages – with unstoppable dynamism, galloping – not dancing. [I have] newfound, strengthened admiration for his world premiere recordings that are, for the time being, not being bettered but only made to sound better by the competition.

” —Jens Laurson, Forbes

Another entry in this immensely rewarding series. This volume reveals the composer’s range more than some of the previous ones. But some pieces here also remind us that Cooman is a versatile composer with well established modern credentials.
