It’s a perfectly natural response when encountering a composer’s work for the first time to compare it to music we already know. We all do it, and this instinct to relate the new to the familiar can help us begin to understand new musical languages and idioms.

However, if we really want to get to grips with new voices, to fully understand what we’re hearing and how it’s affecting us, I think it’s important to move past reacting to music in terms of what it is like, and to move on to engaging with what it is as quickly as we can.

“performed here with thrilling conviction and formidable assurance...Sawyers's excitingly integrated music marries a genuine lyrical impulse to a genuine thematic substance and marvellously invigorating contrapuntal flair.”
