‘Into the Little Hill’ sounds ‘better than ever’ at Wigmore Hall

‘Into the Little Hill’ sounds ‘better than ever’ at Wigmore Hall Given the attention being lavished on Written on Skin, one might expect Benjamin/Crimp's first opera, Into the Little Hill, to be overshadowed, but as an April performance at Wigmore Hall proves, this work has lost none of its potency.

Press Comments:

'...the crowning exhibit, Into the Little Hill, now six years old. The ermergence since of Written on Skiin has done nothing to dent the first opera's power. Indeed, shimmering in the hall's acoustic the music seemed bolder and better than ever, the vocal lines and instrumental ensemble deftly blended...'

'Never one to waste a single note, Benjamin seems to have found his ideal collaborator in Crimp, whose resonant text is at once succinct and hugely evocative. Benjamin's subtly glowing, tangy music was vividly played by the BCMG under his own baton.'
