ANDERS KOPPEL: Double Triple Koppel

01 October 2015  Gramophone
Richard Whitehouse

Few present-day composers can rival Anders Koppel (b1947) for stylistic inclusivity, underlined by a disc featuring two of his concertos. That for recorder and saxophone (2010) takes in the widest timbral variety — juxtaposing the recorder's four main incarnations against the saxophone's alto guise — across three movements whose orthodox trajectory is enlivened by the expressive nuance of the Larghetto and the keenly deflected rhetoric of the finale. If the Triple Concerto (2009) is potentially even more absorbing, the relatively flaccid progress of its second and final movement means momentum is lost well before the close. Nor is the ample duration (nearly 40 minutes) of both pieces ideally sustained, for all that the presence of such artists as Michala Petri and Benjamin Koppel is an undoubted stimulus to listening.
