Sea to the West
Eternity is Now
ArtistsElizabeth Hilliard (soprano)
The six works by four composers are all different in every possible way, except that they are written for the solo voice. In each of these pieces, the exquisite soprano Elizabeth Hilliard demonstrates amazing virtuosity, vocal dexterity and amazing control over techniques such as microtones and lengthy glissandi. But still the music is gripping, not daunting. Subtle electronics accompany in some pieces.
Two works are contributed each by leading English composer Christopher Fox, for whom these pieces are relatively less adventurous than his instrumental material, and by Irish composer Gráinne Mulvey: each a real modern masterpiece. Add music from Linda Buckley and David Bremner for an experience out of the ordinary, but still not inaccessible – in fact this type of programme might persuade many to investigate more modern music.
