Winter Remembered

Two otherworldly, heart-stopping slow movements for strings – the first simply dying away, after one of the most shocking (and perhaps heartbreaking) dissonances ever written; the other resolved (thankfully) with brisk counterpoint – are enclosed by the works of two of this country’s most productive composers. David Matthews – once Benjamin Britten’s associate – gets us underway with a wonderful concertino for viola and strings partly inspired by memories of Schubert’s song-cycle Winterreise, this again closes quietly. And we end with the twenty-three-year-old Britten’s startlingly precocious – and thoroughly entertaining – tribute to his teacher, Frank Bridge.

  • David Matthews - Winter Remembered
