Notes & Reviews:

Laurence Crane was born in Oxford in 1961 and studied composition with Peter Nelson and Nigel Osborne at Nottingham University. He lives and works in London. While his music is mainly written for the concert hall, his list of works includes pieces composed for film, radio, theatre, dance and installation. Michael Finnissy comments on his music that "Like Satie it has a masterful actuality, transcending local styles but in a reservedly melancholy way it's also saturated in history..."
