Michael Gordon’s music ‘feels fundamental at first, then reveals a beguiling complexity and nuance on closer examination’, according to the New York Times. Gordon drew his inspiration for The Unchanging Sea, written for Tomoko Mukaiyama, from the eponymous 1910 film drama. It is followed by Become Ocean by John Luther Adams – ‘it presents a gorgeous surface, yet conveys overwhelming force’, wrote The New Yorker.
