Harold Pinter - Voices



First broadcast to mark the occasion of Harold Pinter's 75th birthday in October 2005, Voices is a powerful and disturbing collaboration between the Nobel Prize-winning playwright and a cutting-edge composer that heightens some of Pinter's most painful images. The tormentors and the tormented so potently etched in Pinter's political plays find a stunning musical counterpoint in James Clarke's score recently commended at the 2006 Prix Italia.
