Originally made in 2006 on limited release, this fantastic album is now available once more. Each composer represented here was an important innovator in different ways- one need only think of how The Rite of Spring shocked the world- they are also linked by a deep interest in folk music. The two major works with percussion are worthy of close comparison, with the Bartok piece being more austere and ‘early-modernist’ than Camilleri’s rich and neo-Romantic work that appeared 70 years later. The percussive score of The Rite of Spring makes it ideal in a two-piano form, and Stravinsky himself made this transcription. The four performers are high achievers in the UK as both soloists and chamber/orchestral players, as well as in academia. Murray McLachlan, a tireless champion of new music, is now one of the most popular and prolific recording pianists if our day.
