Sunday Times Top 100 Albums of 2011
12 December 2011

We are delighted that three NMC releases have made it onto The Sunday Times Top 100 Albums of 2011 list.

Harrison Birtwistle Night's Black Bird

'These relatively recent pieces could be by nobody else. The Shadow of Night and Night's Black Bird are linked essays in melancholy, inspired by Dowland. The Cry of Anubis is a plausible tuba concerto, with a superb soloist in Slade.'

 

Brian Elias The House That Jack Built

'These substantial, gutsy, fastidious pieces attest formidable mastery of the orchestra. Their manner and content are mostly turbulent, their craft imperturbable. The House That Jack Built finds vivid potential in playground chants.'

 

Crossing Ohashi Bridge (Goldberg Ensemble)

'These essays for 11 strings are impressive testimony to the Goldberg's stimulating power. A Japanese print is the spur for the title piece'
