Shir Hashirim


by Julian Anderson

Symphony Hall, Birmingham, 1 June 2003
Anu Komsi/CBSO/Sakari Oramo
‘This response to the text of the Song of Songs is arrestingly rich and expressive…’
The Independent on Sunday (Anna Picard), 8 June 2003

‘The alluring instrumentation is matched by the expressive vocal writing – vividly delivered by Komsi – which encompasses stark syllabic setting, vocalise and elaborate melismata, the whole couched in modally-inflected harmonies which accentuate the music’s ecstatic yearning to potent effect.’
The Classical Source (Richard Whitehouse), June 2003
