Mark-Anthony Turnage : On All Fours

Four imaginative and evocative works by this now well-known contemporary figure: On All Fours and Release are exciting instrumental displays demanding a characteristic battery of percussion, while Lament for a Hanging Man sets texts by Sylvia Plath.

"All four pieces are extremely well played, with Martin Robertson's plangent, micro-tone inflected saxophone audibly at the centre of the sound-world of each, and the recorded sound is vivid."
Gramophone 1995
