Oz Music

This third volume of orchestral music by the Anglo-French composer Steve Elcock (b. 1957) features two symphonies and a quasi-concerto. Over the course of it's two movements, the Sixth Symphony, subtitled Tyrants Destroyed, moves from grief to outrage, rising to a grimly triumphant conclusion. The one-movement Seventh - with some of it's material derived from the words of a song Elcock heard in a dream - runs a gamut of emotion, from anger to heartbreak, in it's impassioned narrative. Manic Dancing, a piano concerto in all but name, inhabits a complex world of driving rhythms, nostalgic flashbacks and hectic dance music - buoyant and good-natured, like Martinu on speed.
