Guardian review of Mr Jonathan Morton, His Ground

Activity: OtherMedia (Press)


"First came a miniature: the second in a set of four new "musical postcards" by Glaswegian composer Martin Suckling, each specially commissioned to fit the ensemble's concert programmes this season. This latest was called Mr Jonathan Morton, his Ground, a daft name basically indicating that the "ground" doesn't sit in the bass but in Morton's violin part. The piece clocks in at just a couple of minutes, but Suckling's distilled gestures and striking contrasts - bare against sumptuous, busy against still, solo against group, prime harmonies against discord - meant the impact lingered much longer."
