David Matthews : In the Dark Time



Two richly dramatic orchestral scores are presented on this disc. In the Dark Time takes its title from TS Eliot's Four Quartets and reflects the turning of the seasons from winter to spring; and Chaconne, inspired by the site of a medieval battlefield.

"Richly orchestrated, with a fine balance between ensemble textures and individual instrumental lines and colours, these vividly captured performances are played with sensitivity and considerable flair by the BBCSO."
The Observer 2001
