Disc No: CYP5604 Jonathan Harvey (°1939) is a leading British composer who is at the same time close to the French music world. Through his spiritual itinerary, which blends Tantric Buddhism and Roman Catholicism, he can be seen as an heir of Messiaen, with whom he shares a fiery, multicoloured luxuriance of expression, and like many French composers, he has played a role in the re-establishment of euphonious, sensual, expressive yet non-neoclassical harmony based on natural resonance. Ictus continues the project started on earlier CDs for Cyprès (TerryRiley, CYP 5601; Helmut Oehring, CYP 5602): to make use, in art music, of all the creative resources of rock studios, under the supervision of the artists themselves.
