Notes and Editorial Reviews

Andrew Matthews-Owen writes of his new release: “I have long enjoyed performing and recording a wonderful variety of contemporary music by some of our most exciting and innovative composers. Most of this repertoire has been for voice and piano, or chamber ensemble, affording me the joy and privilege of working with numerous fine and distinguished musicians. This [album] is however my first recording of contemporary music for solo piano, and has been a revelatory and inspiring experience. Introducing music written in our own time is at once a joy and a responsibility. Often, and despite our best efforts , some very good scores are heard on only a handful of occasions. For many listeners it will be their first encounter with a new composer. Read more Thus a clear belief in the sound world of every composer one premieres is vital not just to the success of a new piece by to winning or losing potential admirers for living composers. The composers on this disc dwell in very different yet equally marvellous sound worlds.” Read less
