Notes and Editorial Reviews

Featured works: "Maya-Sesha," "The Eye of Fire," and "The City of Love." Rolf Hind's career has blossomed over 25 years in a multitude of directions -- establishing him now as a major force as soloist, composer, recording artist, chamber musician, pedagogue, collaborator and concert planner. Rolf Hind has been inspired not only by his performing contacts with a wealth of contemporary composers (he feels a special kinship with Carter, Ligeti, Per Nørga?rd, and Messiaen, among others) but more particularly by his many visits to India and, in recent years, by the disciplines of Ashtanga yoga and Vipassana meditation. Foremost among his fascinations is the concept of moving from an illusion of chaos to a Read more pared-down essence of the material, from obscurity to transparency. There is plentiful evidence of his acute ear for blending the conventional and the unconventional in the three works on this CD. Performed by: BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra conducted by Martyn Brabbins, David Alberman (violin), James Crabb (accordion), Rolf Hind (piano), Sarah Leonard (voice), and the Duke Quartet.
