The program on this remarkable record includes the 'Simple Symphony' Op.4 by Britten (1913-1976) in four movements, which owes its title to the fact that the composer used themes composed between nine and twelve. 'Antiphon' for Orchestra Op.85 by Lennox Berkeley (1903-1989) is in two movements. 'In Nomine (after Purcell)' by Gavin Bryars (1943-) precedes the concluding work 'When Ingrid met Capa' by Michael Nyman (1944-), recounting the meeting of the actress Ingrid Bergman and photographer Robert Capa.

Performed by the Dogma Chamber Orchestra & Mikhail Gurewitsch (conductor)
