Turning away from the privileged world of the "eminent Victorians," Gertrude Bell (1868—1926) explored, mapped, and excavated the world of the Arabs. Recruited by British intelligence during World War I, she played a crucial role in obtaining the loyalty of Arab leaders, and her connections and information provided the brains to match T. E. Lawrence's brawn. After the war, she played a major role in creating the modern Middle East and was, at the time, considered the most powerful woman in the British Empire.

Brett Dean is not shy about revealing what his music is ‘about’. Whether inspired by certain individuals (as in Epitaphs), or by an ecological or human disaster (as in his String Quartet No. 1, on the now all too topical plight of refugees), Dean’s works are usually – perhaps invariably – driven by extra-musical narratives. Rather than tease out any innate structural puzzles or tensions, his music typically falls into short little dramatic narratives – no movement on this disc lasts as long as eight minutes, many of them rather less than five. The most obviously successful work here is Quartet No. 2, ‘And once I played Ophelia’, effectively a dramatic scena. Its soprano soloist is no mere extra voice (as in Schoenberg’s Second Quartet) but the leading protagonist. Allison Bell’s genuinely affecting performance is backed by the Doric Quartet’s expressionist scampering and sustained harmonies, the strings occasionally coming to the fore in the manner of a Schumann-style song postlude.

Britain's Moment in the Middle East: was it an imperial triumph or a decisive staging post in the end-of-empire story? Sir Percy Cox (1864-1937) was a vital figure in the history of the British Empire in the Middle East, part of the pantheon with such legends as T. E. Lawrence and Gertrude Bell.

È il 22 marzo 1921. Davanti alle Piramidi d’Egitto tre turisti occidentali posano per una foto a dorso di un cammello. I primi due sono gli inglesi più famosi del Ventesimo secolo: il ministro delle Colonie, Winston Churchill, e lo scrittore paladino del nazionalismo arabo, Thomas Edward Lawrence. Il terzo – «cappello di paglia ornato di rose e pistola al polpaccio nascosta dalla sottoveste» – è l’archeologa, poetessa, linguista e maggiore dell’esercito Gertrude Bell. Chi è quella donna così influente e talentuosa da essere paragonata a Elisabetta I? E perché ha scelto di «competere a condizioni maschili nel mondo maschile» delle imprese eroiche mediorientali di inizio Novecento?
