Nicky Spence on singing Janáček and Turnage

Gramophone Mon 15th July 2019

The Scottish tenor on two searing explorations of love

The tenor Nicky Spence, with Julius Drake at the piano, has just released a new recording of Janáček’s The diary of one who disappeared, a haunting song-cycle about an illicit love affair. The Hyperion album is Gramophone’s Recording of the Month in its August issue.

Almost simultaneously, Resonus has released on CD for the first time Mark Anthony Turnage’s cycle A Constant Obsession, a work that draws on the work of British poets to explore a love that never quite hits its mark.

Gramophone’s James Jolly went to talk to Nicky Spence about the two releases.
