White as Jasmine

1999

by Jonathan Harvey

Symphony Hall, Birmingham, 29 May 2003
Anu Komsi/CBSO/Sakari Oramo
‘The most beautiful sounds of the evening were the climaxes of Jonathan Harvey’s White as Jasmine, a dramatic scena for soprano (here the sensitive Anu Komsi), which sets the poetry of two 12th-century Indian saints and mystics. The piece finds a way of realising the image of dawn breaking as a “million million suns”: a blinding burst of orchestral sound that enveloped Symphony Hall in the CBSO’s performance, as if the music had transformed into a dazzling, cosmic light.’
The Guardian (Tom Service), 31 May 2003
