Dazzling and exquisite by equal measure, Ophelia Dances (1975) remains one of Oliver Knussen's most performed works . Its composer has long been fascinated by Ophelia and states that here he `wanted to write a piece whose light-headed and giddy qualities would suggest a crossing of the line that divides laughter from tears.' The 8-minute work for nine instruments derives much of its material from Schumann's Carnaval and two late works of Debussy, La boite a joujoux and `Gigues' from Images. An introduction sets up four dances (each more compressed than the last) before the momentum collapses, heralding a poignant coda with an eloquent solo horn wreathed in shimmering celesta. `The perfect miniature from the best ears in the business. Beautiful textures, and every note counts. I heard this for the first time more than 30 years ago while studying with Knussen and I still marvel at its mastery.' Mark-Anthony Turnage in The Guardian, 26 April 2012
