Loving and wistful, savage and bitter, Finnissy (external link)'s colossal early work challenges and celebrates notions of Englishness through engagement with English folk-song and its connotations of rural innocence. Shlomowitz (external link)'s new work for piano and sampler (written for Mark Knoop) presents new perspectives on the familiar.
