Praise for Harrison's 'The Rosegarden of Light' on BBC Radio 3

Following the great success of The Rosegarden of Light European Tour this May-June, the related CD TOCC0342 (featuring music by Sadie Harrison, traditional music from the students at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music and arrangements of popular Afghan songs by Kevin Bishop) continues to receive excellent press.

The latest review was on BBC Radio 3’s Record Review (Saturday 30th July), which described Harrison’s music and the collaboration with ANIM as ‘moving and intriguing’. The review can be heard here:​ http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07m49r3

The disc has also received a fabulous review from MusicWeb International:

"Sadie Harrison's engaging Gulistan-e Nur: The Rosegarden of Light (2015) is laid out in three pairs of Interlude and Movement, each founded on Afghan material. The music, often mysterious and husky, feels at various junctures like a Round, delightfully pointed dances that are fast pulsing and reflective islands. It often rejoices in subtle shadings and the finest thrusts and delicate slashes of a keenly-honed audio scalpel."
