About this Recording

LEFANU: Catena / String Quartet No. 2 / Clarinet Concertino

The daughter of the composer Elizabeth Maconchy and Professor of Music at York University, Nicola LeFanu has composed some sixty works, orchestral, chamber, solo and operatic, which have been played and broadcast all over the world. Her music is modern yet accessible, with a stimulating use of traditional instrumental sonorities in a highly individual way. Influences of late 20th century Russian composers can be heard in the String Quartet No. 2 where the musical thought is carried forward in a succession of changing images, in contrast with the more lyrical Concertino. Canción de la luna revisits the world of Lorca’s moonlit forest. Catena was inspired by the view from the composer’s studio in the High Pyrenees.
