Richard Barrett: Dark Matter, for 19 players / Deborah Kayser, Carl Rosman

Album Summary

>Barrett, Richard : Dark Matter, for ensemble
Conductors Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Dark Matter", scored for an ensemble of 19 performers plus live and pre-recorded electronics, sets secret Egyptian texts carved on the walls of sarcophagi in the pyramids of 2400BC, alongside fragments from Lucretius and other Greek writers on the nature of matter, the stars and other worlds and ending with Samuel Beckett's 'Sounds'.

Gramophone Magazine, April 2013
Although Barrett's music is indeed dark, it is also many other things, often at the same time: playful, unnerving and often surprisingly transparent...Composer and performers seem wonderfully attuned so that, for me at least, the most memorable passages are often associated with a performer...Congratulations to all concerned.
