The Guardian press review of recording of Candlebird

Activity: OtherMedia (Press)


Candlebird Guardian review of recording: Martin Suckling's Candlebird is a superbly accomplished cycle of settings for baritone (the ever secure Leigh Melrose) of poems by Don Paterson, all but one of them based on other poets' words. The intertwining of voice and instruments is immaculate, the musical language, in which microtones coexist comfortably with long melodic lines and expressively potent harmony, is utterly surefooted.
