PIAZZOLLA & BEYOND An amazing disk with brand new arrangements of classic Piazzolla tracks. More than any other composer since J. S. Bach, Astor Piazzolla achieved the ultimate synthesis of the musical influences acting upon him - from Bach to jazz to classical music of his contemporaries - while remaining true to his Argentine roots. In this dazzling programme, London Concertante goes 'beyond' Piazzolla classics and introduces four newly written works by David Gordon and Adam Summerhayes that pay homage to the master.

walters-cover-150
The Welsh composer Gareth Walters (1928–2012) studied with Jean Rivier and Olivier Messiaen in Paris in the early 1950s, inheriting a formal elegance which characterised his music ever after, enhanced on this disc by a nocturnal, serenade-like quality. The two song-cycles on this disc – Cân y galon (‘Song of the Heart’), set in Welsh, on aspects of love, and Poésies du soir, which evoke the calm of summer evenings – share the song-writing clarity of Britten, whose early encouragement galvanised Walters’ career as a composer. They enclose the buoyant, Celtic-coloured Little Suite for Flute and Harp, the expansive Violin Sonata and the gentle Berceuse for harp.
