Jonathan Dove is one of Britain’s most resourceful and versatile contemporary composers, whose affinity for vocal setting is especially striking. From the operatic canvas of his acclaimed 'Flight' to his song cycles, his acutely perceptive approach to texts is unmistakeable.
Out of Winter, written in collaboration with Dove, is the late Sir Robert Tear’s poetic response to Thomas Hardy’s Winter Words. Cut My Shadow is a powerful and harrowing setting of three Lorca texts notable for a sense of constant unease and longing for a homeland.
All You Who Sleep Tonight, to poems by Vikram Seth, is elegant, moving and witty, whilst Ariel explores Shakespeare’s elusive character from The Tempest in a rôle for unaccompanied soprano.
Cut My Shadow and All You Who Sleep Tonight are heard here in world premiere recordings.
