Simon Holt : era madrugada & other works

One of Britain's most compelling compositional voices: Canciones sets Spanish folk lyrics and a poem by Lorca, while ...era madrugada is an enigmatic instrumental work based on another Lorca poem, about a stranger found dead in the street.

"These works, all from the 1980s, confirm [Holt] as one of the most distinctive and successful composers of his generation."
Gramophone Critics' Choice 1993
