Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Described by his teacher, Stanford, as "the one who most fulfilled the accepted ideas of genius", the poet and composer Ivor Gurney composed more than 300 songs despite suffering from bipolar disorder and tuberculosis. The 'Five Elizabethan Songs' show the young composer's astonishing limpid fluency, while 'Tears' and 'Sleep' rank among his most exquisite creations. Comedy, desolation and lovelorn longing all touch the music of this "lover and maker of beauty", whose songs find ideal interpreters in Susan Bickley and Iain Burnside.
