Wunderkammer(konzert) - the title work of this first album devoted to the music of Liverpool-born Kenneth Hesketh - is a chamber concerto exploring the idea of the Wunderkammer, or ’cabinet of curiosities’, which flourished in the 16th to 18th centuries. Graven Image is inspired by the medieval memento mori, a painting or sculpture designed to remind its owner of the brevity of life, while At God speeded summer’s end uses melodic ideas influenced by the structure of Dylan Thomas’s poem Prologue.
 
A Rhyme for the Season, written for the RLPO, explores ideas of rhyme and assonance; while Ein Lichtspiel (after Moholy-Nagy), commissioned by Ensemble 10/10 for its 10th birthday, is a response to the Hungarian artist’s 1930 film of effects produced by his invention, the Light-Space Modulator.
 
The works on this album were written largely for their performers here, with whom Hesketh has collaborated on many occasions.

"... There’s far too much in these works to grap in one hearing, but the colorful orchestration and palpable verve in the individual gestures and large-scale constructiom make me want to return to them again and again. The performances are committed and expert in every way. I hope to hear more of Hesketh’s work."

"... performance and recording are first-rate..."
