Andrew Clements' top 10 classical music of 2016

Birmingham Contemporary Music Group devoted its last concert of the year to two major Volans premieres. One was his latest piano concerto, the fourth, written for soloist Barry Douglas, the other was his 12th String Quartet, a 35-minute journey through a musical landscape of irregular pulsings, pizzicatos and sudden glassy chords, in which the two parallel strands in Volans’ music, the folk traditions of his native South Africa and the post-1945 experimental tradition, are magically interwoven.
