David Matthews : Cantiga/ Symphony No.4

Cantiga sets the tragic, bloodthirsty story of the 14th-century Spanish noblewoman Inęs de Castro; Matthews Symphony No.4 subverts its classical model with plainsong and a tango.

"Beautiful, individual things in all four pieces... Matthews is at his best when he’s most unashamedly Romantic."
BBC Music Magazine 2003
