Item Number: NX.FCR157

In WAM, British composer Michael Finnissy plays with various elements of "musical culture" - rearranging and recontextualizing old "classics", writing chamber music without traditional synchronicity, and allowing performers the freedom to reorder their pages of music. Through this deconstruction of classical conventions, Finnissy creates music that is endlessly surprising and wide-ranging in its emotional character.
