Detlev Muller-Siemens - Phoenix

BCMG has come up with a scheme, Sound Investment, whereby individuals, schools and businesses can commission a piece, and it was thus that Phoenix, by the prominent German composer Detlev Müller-Siemens came into being…Phoenix is a new departure for Müller-Siemens – it is a move towards a different tradition: that of the colourful, incandescent surfaces and electric rhythms of Messiaen, Ligeti and Birtwistle’
The Sunday Times

First performed by BCMG conducted by Elgar Howarth at the Warwick Arts Centre on 2 March 1994.
