Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gráinne Mulvey and Deirdre Gribbin are rapidly establishing a formidable reputation as two composers to watch. Recorded here for the first time are six key works. These include Mulvey's 'Rational Option Insanity' - the work that catapulted her to stardom when it won the first prize of the RTE 'Musician of the Future' competition in 1994. Gribbin's own amazing sound-world reveals a very special voice. 'How To Make The Water Sound' is a mystical exploration of the sound of water. 'The Sanctity of Trees' is a meditative work for solo guitar that celebrates nature's effect on a small boy. 'Giles' is a mercurial journey through the world of Italian 'commedia dell'arte'. A fascinating collection of pieces from two unique talents. 'Two Read more composers who are not going to go away...a superb variety of works' - Irish Music Today Read less
