Nicholas Sackman : Hawthorn

The first in NMC's series of BBC Proms commissions, Nicholas Sackman's Hawthorn is characterised by a colourful whirlwind of shuddering rhythms, vast swirling textures and lyrical lines.

"That elusive and unpackageable quality, integrity ... you can hear it shining through in this beautifully paced, haunting evocation of a modern Yorkshire folk-tale."
BBC Music Magazine 1996
