Notes & Reviews:

The Metier label continues a very strong commitment to the music of Finnissy with this latest recording. "Unknown Ground" was written in '89/'90 and has received several performances since. "A propos de Nice" is a scoring for the 1930 Jean Vigo silent film of the same name. "Kritik der Urteilskratt" or "Critique of Judgment" and draws its inspiration from the work of Kant.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The first piece on the record, Kritik der Urteilskraft (Critique of Judgement), is a direct reference to the work of Kant. A Propos de Nice was written as a score to a 1930 silent film of the same title by Jean Vigo. It is performed often without the film. The title piece, Unknown Ground, is the high point of the album. The text is quite expressive. It is a powerful work by the English composer, played and sung with dedication.
