Notes & Reviews:

Hallé marks the centenary of the First World War with a recording of award-winning work by Composer Emeritus Colin Matthews. The main work on the recording, No Man's Land, follows Matthews' very positive collaboration with Christopher Reid on Alphabicycle Order, written for Hallé in 2007, and stages a dialogue between the ghosts of two dead soldiers whose corpses are strung up on the barbed wire of no man's land.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Hallé St. Peter's, Ancoats, Manchester (06/05/2014-06/09/2014).
