Richard Barrett : Vanity



A complex and intense score inspired by the 17th-century tradition of still-life 'vanitas' painting, Vanity explores the meaning of life through three linked movements.

"This CD single presents the biggest work to date by a little-known but conspicuously talented composer... The structure as well as the sound world of Vanity is as bold as it is original. A remarkable work."
The Sunday Times 1997
