Hesketh: In ictu oculi — Orchestral Works


Add To Wish List + $17.09 ($18.99) - Out of stock

This new release features three works by composer Kenneth Hesketh. Knotted Tongues is based on a theory of René Descartes (1637) which expounds the idea that the body is no more than a wonderfully complex machine. Of Time and Disillusionment is written for a reduced quasi-classical orchestra (no percussion) and focuses on clarity of line without adumbration in orchestral texture. In Ictu Oculi, Three meditations is an extended meditation upon the transience of time and that all things come to an end. Kenneth Hesketh has been described as “one of the UK’s most vibrant voices, having a brand of modernism that reveals true love for sound itself” (International Piano) and as “a composer who both has something to say and the means to say it.” (Tempo Magazine) He has received numerous national and international commissions, including the Fromm Foundation, the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, and the BBC Philharmonic.
