Marcus Blunt, who turns 70 years old this year, is a well established British composer with an international voice - his harmonic language is distinctive and varied; arising from the Romantic tradition but full of complex contrapuntal chromaticism -and also touched by the mystic in subtle ways, perhaps more apparent in his solo piano music. These works are firmly in the modern mainstream and deserve a wide audience; from the convoluted lines of the Concerto, the restrained small orchestration of the Symphony to the picturesque nature of the Bassoon Concertino, Blunt's works retain an intense interest for the listener. Murray McLachlan, one of the UK's most celebrated pianists, has long championed Blunt's work. Lesley Wilson is one of Britain's most seasoned bassoonists and the award-winning Manchester Camerata has recently risen to the highest ranking among British chamber orchestra.
