BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.
The complexity of this paradoxical juxtaposition of elements is intensified by Harvey's use of two different tempos simultaneously proceeding, which requires an additional conductor to pull off. White as Jasmine, a setting of six 12th century Hindu texts for soprano and orchestra, is the only work here to use electronics, an element typical of many of Harvey's scores.
The BBC Scottish Symphony, led by Ilan Volkov, plays with a confident mastery of the demanding scores and a sensitivity to their mercurial shifts and transformations.

BODY MANDALA includes four recent works performed by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Ilan Volkov. This collaboration results from Harvey's position as Composer in Association with the BBC SSO from 2005 to 2007. Of Harvey, relatively unknown in America, a few salient aspects might be noted. First, his French ties, both to Boulez and IRCAM and its electroacoustic technology as well as to Grisey and the "spectralist school. Body Mandala" for orchestra (2006) at first strikes the listener with its foreboding deep brass calls, meant to represent the remarkable natural horns used in Tibetan Buddhist ritual. The music soon rises into the woodwinds and the writing has a great deal of swing towards a Pure Land" (2005) grows towards a profound silence halfway through, representing the achievement of a perfect state of mind in Buddhism.
