This latest release documents premiere recordings of works by Mark-Anthony Turnage, the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s Composer in Residence.

Ten years after its rst performance at the Aldeburgh Festival, Marin Alsop conducts a studio performance of Turnage’s remarkable work for mezzo-soprano and chamber ensemble, Twice Through the Heart. The piece is a collaboration with poet Jackie Kay and explores the real-life story of an abused woman imprisoned for the murder of her husband. The music is lyrical but abrupt, painful but often quiet and reective; one of the composer’s most finely crafted, intensely moving and technically accomplished works. ‘It’s almost made for Sarah’s [Connolly] voice’, says Turnage, ‘she gets very close
to the heart of it’.

The Torn Fields was also recorded in the studio, and is sung by baritone Gerald Finley, for whom Turnage wrote the work in 2000-02. This often nightmarish, vivid glimpse of the destruction of war using poetry from 1914-1918 is another example of the composer’s extraordinary ability to create vocal lines that embody their texts. Turnage has himself commented on the huge challenges he experiences when writing vocal music, but
concedes that ‘writing for Gerald Finley makes it easier…he is, in my view, one of the greatest baritones around’.

Sandwiched between these works is a recording made live at the world première of Turnage’s Hidden Love Song in January 2006. The soloist, Martin Robertson, is another close friend and regular collaborator with Turnage, and this performance reveals the sensitive, delicate nature of Turnage’s musical gift to his wife Gabriella Swallow.

Acclaim for the concert performance of Hidden Love Song:
“Played with arching smoothness by Martin Robertson…Ultimately the piece is a love song,
and a beautiful one.”
(The Guardian)

“Martin Robertson played the solo part beautifully, but what was perhaps most signicant was the transparency and delicacy of Turnage’s orchestration.”
(Evening Standard)

“This is Turnage at his most personal, and the result is a miniature masterpiece” (Financial Times)
