Financial Times review of storm, rose, tiger

Activity: OtherMedia (Press)


**** ‘Suckling, a Glaswegian born in 1981, has clear musical ideas and knows how to develop them, always leading the ear with a skein of beguiling sonorities. Therein lies the success of storm, rose, tiger… The opening section, lush and luminous, pits string and brass cantilenas against disruptive woodwind commentaries, generating a sense of creative struggle. Then comes a sequence of intensely expressive polyphonies, almost pibroch-like in their reverberant, lilting effects. After some moody, meditative trumpet calls, the piece ends with a passacaglia of majestic pulse and grandeur.’ Financial Times (Andrew Clark), 29 April 2013
