Review quote

Skempton's harmony is nothing if not explicit, and precise, and he wrings maximum effect from a pared minimum of matter. This music is Irreduciblist. The pieces contain nothing they do not need, and nothing could be subtracted without loss. There's no rhetoric, no bravura display, no smokescreen of Postmodern irony, no false naivety. Skempton composes essences, and they go straight to the heart. * Tempo *show more
