Bliss Meditations on a Theme by John Blow

Reviews

"The three movement Music for Strings is generally a dark and serious score with dense textures that are brought out superbly by the CBSO...in the closing movement the CBSO manage to discover an innate sense of mystery that at times borders on the sinister. Bliss's attractive Meditations reminded me of the dramatic and opulent sound world of Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe. The Finale has an impressive heroic central section that could easily serve as the conclusion to a great symphony. The quality of the performances and excellent sound make this Lyrita disc a most attractive proposition." Michael Cookson, musicweb-international.com
