METIER’s third CD dedicated to the “impressive, thoughtful, entertaining and extremely varied” [Sunday Times] music of Christopher Fox. Fox brings music for solo cello into the modern age – his sometimes microtonic, sometimes lyrical, writing demands especial skill and virtuosity from the performer – ably provided by Lukoszieveze. Fox, for those in the know, is one of the foremost contemporary composers in the UK – see other Metier CDs of his music.

Reviews

The Wire

Inner tells you everything you need to know about the uncharted possibilities of acoustic composition. In Anton Lukoszevieze, [Fox] has found a consummate narrative performer who makes much of the tension between the often delicate purity of the music and its structural rigour.

” —Philip Clark
The Sunday Times

played with radiant commitment by a votary of avant-gardism. [In inner] the simplest of little phrases is revisited 33 times to form an epic succession that suggests a dadaist version of a Bach chaconne, but has the genuine spiritual pull of one of Morton Feldman’s rapt excursions.
