More info on the concerto below...

Estonian-born Erkki-Sven Tüür is one of the most exciting and accessible composers to have emerged from Eastern Europe. Like Rachmaninov, whose music is also featured in this evening`s programme, he is involved in contemporary culture as well as classical music, citing influences as eclectic as Gregorian Chant and 70s pop music. Noēsis, the Greek word for the process of cognition and understanding, received its world première in Detroit, where it was received rave reviews:

`....Tüür`s mesmerizing concerto with violinist Isabelle van Keulen and clarinettist Michael Collins. Tüür`s sound world is a brooding collage of atonal spikes, ghostly wisps, severe crescendos, pulsating rhythms, stuttering repetitions and spirals, calm stasis and disarming melody.`
Detroit Free Press, June 2005
