Editorial Reviews

These are amongst the most committed and persuasive performances of contemporary music I've heard for a long time; in the words of Heidi Waleson, when it comes to Torkes music Zinman is a true believer and it certainly shows. Producer Andrew Cornall is too, which is more than evident in the immaculate and beautifully produced recording.

Format: Audio CD
This music really pulses, and it's not overly aggressive or strangling. It doesn't come at you with the bludgeoning (while still tonal) feel of Paul Hindemith, but it's got a vibrancy to it which is really pleasing. It's not torpid music like you might find in something like an Elgar oratorio. Perhaps an apt comparison is Wynton Marsalis's Citi Movement. However, it might strike you that it's repetitive; I don't think it's as repetitive as Glass.

If I had to come up with a complaint (you made me) I'd say it's that it doesn't have a lot of underlying textures competing with each other.

I can't comment on the performance, sorry

I heard "Bright Blue" on the radio and it was such a happy piece, I decided to try more Torke. The tunes kind of have a sameness to them. But it's nice driving music.
