Here Schurmann emerges as a composer able to convey fluently a personal response and emotional reactions in a sharply contemporary but perceptively communicative idiom. All the range of Bacon’s pictures — from the grotesque to the comedy of situation — is conveyed in both outline and depth, and in doing this the composer has added his own extra dimension of observation. Texturally, it is music of high sensitivity; harmonically, it is richly colored.
