Dr Bryn Harrison’s seventy-six minute work Vessels performed by Dr Philip Thomas on the Another Timbre label has also received excellent reviews. John Eyles in All About Jazz remarks: ‘This performance was by pianist Philip Thomas, for whom Harrison wrote the piece. Thomas joined the staff at Huddersfield in 2005, becoming Head of Performance in 2010. He is increasingly being featured on Another Timbre releases. The piece was recorded as a single take—no mean feat given its frequent repetitions. Its success owes a great deal to Thomas’s powers of concentration… fascinating, memorable and intriguing.’
The first London performance of the extended version of Bryn Harrison’s Vessels will be presented on May 5th at Cafe OTO.
