COMPOSERS: Mccabe
LABELS: Hyperion
WORKS: Symphony No. 4 (Of Time and the River); Flute Concerto
PERFORMER: Emily Beynon (flute); BBC SO/Vernon Handley
CATALOGUE NO: CDA 67089
With raw brutality Handley and the BBC SO create a real sense of desolation in McCabe’s Fourth Symphony. The continually flowing Flute Concerto fares less well, but then its often obsessively repetitive motifs are less conducive to keeping the listener fully engaged. Kate Sherriff
