Mark-Anthony Turnage

Your Rockaby

An 80's Mendelssohn scholar, Turnage has rapidly earned a unique position among composers of his generation for his distinctively lyrical works and a remarkable ability to create complex yet lucid instrumental textures within an innate dramatic sense. He is Composer in Association with the English National Opera as well as Artistic Consultant to their Contemporary Opera Studio. Your Rockaby showcases the haunting saxophone work of soloist Martin Robertson with the BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Andrew Davis.
