Casken: Violin Concerto; Concerto for Orchestra; Orion over Farne – Sophia Jaffé (violin), Hallé Orchestra, Markus Stenz

Casken’s work is often inspired by the Northumberland countryside and coastline: the symphonic poem Orion over Farne (1984 – 86) draws on the myth, landscape, and poetry of the Farne Islands, using rich orchestral sonorities. The Violin Concerto, premiered at the 1995 BBC Proms and performed by the young German violinist Sophia Jaffé, takes its narrative from Tolstoy's Father Sergius, a story reflecting some of the turmoil of human experience. The Concerto for Orchestra (2007) is Casken’s most recent orchestral work, written for the Nationaltheaterorchester Mannheim and reflecting Casken’s interest in two-movement forms, which began with the Cello Concerto (1991).



 "...A disc of vitality and contrast, expertly played by the Hallé ..."

The Guardian 

 

 "...These splendid performances come in Casken’s 65th birthday year and afford a powerful distillation of his musical thought."

 
The Sunday Times

 " ...this is a must for devotees and initiates alike..."

 
The Northern Echo

 "His music is usually direct in appeal, with melodic writing not unlike Maw’s, and repays repeated and focused listening... That said, there is no denying the music’s immediacy of appeal and explicit lyricism, which Sophia Jaffé catches in her finely nuanced interpretation... The Hallé accompany marvellously and Markus Stenz elicits equally fine playing in the other two works (not least some wonderful solo wind-playing in Orion). Excellent sound, as usual, from NMC. Strongly recommended."
