Mark-Anthony Turnage is one of the most successful modern composers. His works have been strongly influenced by jazz in general, and by Miles Davis in particular. With his mixture of jazz and classical music styles and his creative sounds Turnage enriches the field of contemporary music. 'Greek', first performed in 1988, was composed in on behalf of the 'Munich Biennale' and is based on Steven Berkoff's adaptation of 'Oedipus the King' to a modern-day setting in London. It received its premi?¿re in Munich and won the prizes for best opera and best libretto. It is a typical example of Turnage's determinedly urban music. His compositional style is not consistently tonal, but remains accessible, colourful, often with aggressive effects, but always retaining an underlying lyricism, at times with a powerful dramatic impact and emotional power.
