Kamran Ince writes music of thrilling intensity. His Piano Concerto is a “sonic dream” of a work, constructed on the principle of block-like contrasts that embody startling and glittering sound worlds, and Infrared Only is no less stupendous in its impact. The 1994 Symphony No. 2 is the first of his works to include Turkish elements and these invest the music with a rich panoply of timbres. Folk elements deepen in the Concerto for Orchestra, where Ince employs instruments full of potency and power such as the zurna and ney. The result is music of intoxication and intimacy, violence and tenderness.


Review By Jack Sullivan,American Record Guide,November 2011

This recording presents bold, colorful music by the Turkish-American composer, Kamran Ince, who has recorded three other discs for Naxos. I knew I was in for a wild ride when I saw in the notes that Symphony 2 and the Concerto for Orchestra, the opening works, represent the composer’s “more patient and mature” side. Having been knocked out of my chair by the time I read this, I couldn’t imagine what the impatient side was like.
