Oliver Knussen: Reflection Op. 31a With Tamsin Waley-Cohen On Violin And Huw Watkins On Piano
Scottish composer Oliver Knussen was admired and encouraged by Benjamin Britten, which propelled his popularity among modern composers and orchestras. This intense 8-minute work for violin and piano revolves around the theme of reflection. The melody is inverted - or reflected - at various points and the whole score is in fact a reflection, with the middle section acting as the mirror for the first and third sections. Hear the works of a modern-day great.
