At Midnight: Songs and Chamber Music by Ian Venables


Described as “one of the finest song composers of his generation”, Ian Venables’ music for voice and string quartet draws on a wealth of literary and musical sources, in particular from the 19th Century romantic tradition. Performances on this disc come from British tenor Andrew Kennedy and the award winning Dante Quartet.

Stylish and graceful melodic invention, vividly realised in Andrew Kennedy’s plangent tenor and the keenly judged playing of the Dantes – The Observer

In his writing for strings, the instruments sing – one could almost fancy they had words written into their parts – Gramophone

This is a distinguished and eloquent set of songs – MusicWeb International
