The Solem Quartet
This brilliant album collects a number of Parker’s recent compositions which are not directly for TV but still have a marvelous pictorial quality and display his remarkable talent for memorable melodies and coloration, whether it be the recorder acting like a Peruvian pipe, or violins emulating the hurdy-gurdy.
Light music albums of this quality are very rare these days and this is a joyful gem. The first three suites are scored for string quartet (some with recorder, harp and bass); Hoofers (named for stage dancers) is a suite for oboe and piano of individual pieces: ‘The Flying Scotsman’, ‘The Lonely Ballerina’, ‘Banjolele’, and ‘Hoofers’.
