Memorable music from a master gone too soon


Jóhann Jóhannsson's 'Drone Mass'

The Morning Star, 15 March 2022

'While the score for the vocal parts is clearly defined Johannsson would often leave instrumental parts slightly open, especially when working with musicians like ACME, to whom he felt close.

Hillier and Theatre of Voices thrive in this playful experimentation. Johannsson died in Berlin on February 9 2018, aged 48, following what the coroner described an an accidental cocaine overdose. Tragically, young and with so much still to offer. Drone Mass is a beguiling moving and personal dream like tribute from some of those who knew him best in music.'
