We are delighted to announce the release of a new double disc of Steve Martland’s works, out today on NMC.
Martland’s music is known for its distinctive muscularity and power, often amplified and rhythmically driven, and this release certainly demonstrates this. However, it also shows that he produced music with a poignant and intense beauty, as in Patrol for string quartet or his orchestral work Crossing the Border.
Once described as ‚one of the most vibrant, unconventional and dynamic forces in British music‘, Martland died unexpectedly two years ago. This fantastic new double CD is a wonderful celebration of his life and work.
