About

The works that have been chosen for this disc come from two distinct stages in Christopher Rouseís career, with the Flute Concerto (soloist: Sharon Bezaly) and the Second Symphony sharing as starting-point their makerís preoccupation with the subject of death during the early 1990s. They also have a compositional strategy in common: in both works a central slow movement acts like a pivot, changing the listenerís perception of the music that follows, but also precedes it.

But if the mood created by the Flute Concerto, with influences from both Irish and Scottish folk music, may be described as resigned, Symphony No.2 addresses its subject in a much more furious way.
