Excellent Review for Sadie Harrison’s ‘Fire in Song’ in Musical Opinion

We are delighted that the Divine Art/Metier recording of Sadie’s new chamber work Fire in Song has received another excellent review, this time by Paul Conway in Musical Opinion. Conway writes: 'In Sadie Harrison’s Fire in Song, for clarinet, viola and two clapstick-playing narrators (2020), the creation story about fire is told by the Yolngu group of Aboriginal Australians. The work was written during the catastrophic bush fires that swept much of Australia in 2019-2020 and reflects on the Aboriginal approach to these fires.

SADIE HARRISON AWARDED CREATIVE RETREAT AT SNAPE MALTINGS

We are delighted that Sadie has been granted a Creative Retreat at the Red Studio as part of the Snape Maltings Britten Pears Arts initiative. Creative Retreats say: 'For Benjamin Britten, a quiet place to compose was absolutely essential. He was fortunate enough to achieve this for most of his life, spending his last two decades at The Red House, down a quiet lane on the outskirts of Aldeburgh.

Great ‘Tempo’ review for Simaku’s ‘con-ri-sonanza’ CD

Thomas Simaku’s CD album on BIS Records, con-ri-sonanza, has received another great review, in July 2021’s Tempo magazine.  The review begins with a challenging remark from Simaku himself:

‘‘Life isn’t easy,’ said British-Albanian composer Thomas Simaku, ‘why should my music be?’  In con-ri-sonanza, an album for piano and string quartet, individually and together Joseph Houston and Quatuor Diotima bridge this implied difficulty admirably, producing genuine and vivid recordings.’
