Sadie Harrison’s music is instantly recognisable from that of any other composer of her generation. She has a potent sense of instrumental colour and a distinctive rhythmic vigour permeates all of her output. Here a programme of her exotic chamber music is presented by leading musicians in the contemporary music field.
“Music of real individuality and purpose, in excellent recordings.”
"Rhythm and lyricism held in perfect balance in a young Australian composer’s rewarding programme of chamber and vocal works. The playing is shapely and eloquent, the recording well-defined to a fault. This is a debut which leaves you eager to hear more from such a versatile and accomplished composer.”
“Sadie Harrison has an original imagination that expresses itself in a fluent, thoughtfully poetic language.”
“Harrison’s music is often beguiling and has vivid extra-musical resonances. She’s in the category of what could be described as domesticated modernism - tonal composers who are aware of modernist gestures while aware of the danger of audience-alienation. Harrison is a composer to look out for.”
