About this Recording

INCE, K.: Symphony No. 3, "Siege of Vienna" / Symphony No. 4, "Sardis" (Prague Symphony, Ince)

‘That rare composer able to sound connected with modern music, and yet still seem exotic’ (Los Angeles Times)

Winner of the Prix de Rome and the Lili Boulanger Prize Kamran Ince was born in Montana to American/Turkish parents, but educated in Turkey before settling in the USA at the beginning of the 1980s. Much of his work continues to be inspired by his love for the country of his upbringing. Symphony No. 4 ‘Sardis’‚ is a depiction of a Bronze-age archeological site, complete with vivid images of dramatic Turkish landscapes. Ince describes his Symphony No. 3 ‘Siege of Vienna’‚ as ‘a synthesis of West and East ... a meeting of the characteristics of the two' portrayed through the battles between Ottoman East and Habsburg West in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
