Crazed Moon, The


by Julian Anderson

Royal Festival Hall, 30 April 2003
London PO/Tadaaki Otaka
‘The emotional climax of the concert had already been and gone in a piece only 13 minutes long. Julian Anderson’s 1997 score, The Crazed Moon, a tribute to a friend, opened the programme with a profundity nothing else on it could match. A haunting passage for three off-stage trumpets, worrying around the notes that make up the friend’s initials, begins and ends the work. After the intensity of the rest of this performance, the reprise brought an extraordinary sense of catharsis.’
The Guardian (Erica Jeal), 3 May 2003

Symphony Hall, Birmingham, 6 February 2003
‘… his most distinctive orchestral work to date … An unorthodox and powerful threnody, demonstrating Anderson’s orchestral prowess at its keenest.’
The Classical Source (Richard Whitehouse), February 2003
