Bent Sørensen: La Notte

14 April 2013  The Sunday Times (UK)

First recordings of three works from the 1990s, each involving the piano - beautifully played by Hind - but linked in other ways. The Masque of the Red Death, the Poe-inspired piano piece, uses a technique of rapid, staccato, often high-lying figuration, perhaps derived from Berio, that is the textural mainstay in the first of the two movements of the piano concerto, La Notte. This 24-minute, atmospheric structure seems less concerned with confrontation or dialectic than with a kind of parallel discourse for soloist and orchestra. In Sieben Sehnsüchte for violin and piano, the latter has a vivid dramatic role - it is far from a mere accompanist.
