Herald Scotland review of Six Speechless Songs

Activity: OtherMedia (Press)


"In Martin Suckling's new commission, Six Speechless Songs, I was captivated again by this young man's orchestrational mastery, and drawn into his personal background to the composition, as a new father. I heard a beguiling, nocturnal sound world, full of stillness and restlessness from the cot, and the alluring sense of a small presence with the rocking, lullaby strain in the music. There's more to it, and I'm sure we'll hear it again." Michael Tumelty
