Prelude & Deodato 2
Themes from The Exorcist, The French Connection, The Sting and other great films & Flashpoint
Hiroshima & Odori
Three remarkable chamber music discoveries make this an unmissable release. The world premiere of Paul Adrian Rooke's performing edition of three Elgar sketches ranging from the early 1880s to 1920 is an essential listen for all Elgarians, presented by Rooke in true Elgarian style. The early Frank Bridge Piano Quartet is a delightful and engaging score, which has not been heard for over a hundred years, while Adela Maddison said to be Fauré's mistress produced a large scale and gripping Piano Quintet from the dark years of the First World War. All are now revived in powerful performances by the Fibonacci Sequence with pianist Kathron Sturrock.
