Double Concerto "Dialogue" / Clarinet Concerto / "Sunburst"

Sunburst CD cover
2019
Naxos Classical
Wolfgang David, Timothy Gill, and Emmanuel Siffert conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

These world premiere recordings of works by award-winning composer David Gompper reflect his recent interest in the concerto, as well as his evolution of approach through increasing complexity in time and space, textural landscape and narrative detail. The Double Concerto ‘Dialogue’ covers moods from lyrical to argumentative and inconsequential chatter to deeper reflection, while the Clarinet Concerto relates to the energy and skill of the Parkour runner. The explosive colours of Sunburst are associated with the star-shaped proportions of the Farey numeric series. Gompper’s exquisite Violin Concerto can be heard on Naxos 8.559637.
