Think you've left it too late to book your summer family holiday? Don't panic: just for once, things could go your way. A combination of factors (the small matter of an economic recession, not the least of them) has left many holiday companies scrabbling to fill their capacity – yes, even in August. It may not be great news for them, but it means you can scoop up a host of jolly deals for your brood.

Dealing with troubled adolescents in a sanatorium, it offers Greenwood plenty of scope for mournful progressions, bleak mist-curtains of strings, and more daring strategies like the looming dissonances lurking like massing insects beneath "Naoko ga Shinda", realised here by the BBC Concert Orchestra and The Emperor Quartet. A couple of tracks feature delicate tracery of classical guitar, but the most baffling feature of the album is the inclusion of three old tracks by Can, which possess a lightness, and dynamic character somewhat absent in the rest of the score.
