Bliss - Colour Symphony/Adam Zero (1996) Retail CD
Bliss started as a young radical, and because he did not change very much, ended as a pillar of the establishment and the Master of the Queen's Music. The Colour Symphony, written when he was 30, is here given a clear, uncluttered performance that stresses its complex lines and the attention Bliss pays to giving each instrument and group attractive music to play. It is at once a very traditional piece of work with its slowish first movement, biting scherzo, lyrical slow movement and double fugue finale, and an exploration of ways of integrating new techniques--jazz rhythms for example--into thatmore… tradition. The later ballet, Adam Zero, failed to make it into the repertory largely because Robert Helpmann injured himself performing the taxing central role of a hero who grows to maturity, becomes middle-aged and corrupt, and then, in old age, is relieved to be seduced by an attractive Death. Lloyd-Jones's performance of this unjustly forgotten, and not otherwise available, work achieves real profundity in the final pas de deux, makes an attractive case for the more routine sections, and has a jaunty bounce in the wild rhythms of the grotesque nightclub scene. --Roz Kaveney
