Ronald Center (1913-73) is sometimes described as 'the Scottish Bart�k', and his music does indeed capture some of the wild energy of the Scottish landscape in a style of Bart�kian asperity. It also shows affinities with the music of Busoni, Debussy, Prokofiev, Shostakovich and Vaughan Williams, absorbed into an individual style that is audibly Scots. Center was essentially a miniaturist, his meticulous craftsmanship allowing him to encompass a range of emotions - heart-felt sorrow, grim humour, relaxed lyricism, dark despair - in a crisp and succinct manner, animated by sharp wit and irony. Many of the works recorded here also show off his skill as a contrapuntist and one, surprisingly, is a rumba.
