Press Reviews for Cycles
As one of my favorite composers and all around personalities, I find myself enthralled with most anything Nico Muhly has his talented hands in. And the latest bit of sonically beautiful and thrilling news is fellow Bedroom Community label mate James McVinnie's new project Cycles, an album of stunning organ pieces by Muhly. Taking the composer's schitzophrenic and haunting amalgamation of layered notes and texture, McVinnie breathes life into Cycles with dark intensity. The turbulence of Muhly's compositions feels slightly more delicate and sparkling pouring out of the pipe organ, building and growing to a powerful and stimulating abrupt end. And as is usually the case with Muhly's music, leaves you craving the next note.
