Reviews For Mark David Boden

 

 

“Gentle droplets fell and rivulets ran…the strings shrouded in atmospheric mizzle. Yet Boden allowed the music to veer off… in colourful, filmic style”

The Times

 

“Boden handled the full forces – often deployed tutti – with impressive verve”

Wales Arts Review

 

 

 

 

 

“The composer expresses something personal to him but which also, in its guileless honesty and comfortingly familiar musical language, speaks to us all”

Wales Arts Review

 

“The University of St Andrews Symphony Orchestra’s appointment of the fabulous young composer, Mark David Boden is to be truly celebrated”

Paul Mealor, Composer

 

 

MARK DAVID BODEN:  SAMPLES

 

 

 

When BBC NOW approached Mark about a commission for their 90th birthday celebration, he asked producer Tim Thorne about the possibility of writing a clarinet concerto for principal clarinetist Rob Plane.

Rob and Mark are both keen distance runners and this was used as a starting point for the structure of the concerto (which loosely relates to running a marathon).

Shadows of a Changing Land takes inspiration from a book of photography by Peter Freeman depicting the Lake District National Park. Mark was particularly drawn to Freeman’s use of natural light and shadow to capture the vivid and striking colours of the natural world. 

 


Murmurations can range from a few hundred birds creating small shimmering balls of energy, to vast undulating masses of millions. This natural phenomenon was explored in the oscillating and rippling textures which generate a sense of fluid and yet unpredictable motion in Murmurations for a double string orchestra.
