About

In the world of new music where Ďanything goesí it is a very special composer who can create a sound and style so individual that it stands out as exceptional; such a composer is David Braid, whose writing is truly Ďart-musicí but has resonances with tone colours found in other genres which make its appeal almost universal, as seen by his recent album on Toccata Classics.

The key to his sound is first a choice of awesomely good performers, including the most perfect mezzo-soprano voice of today, owned by Emily Gray; and also to Braidís use of the resonant archtop (electric) guitar which is a perfect accompaniment to the vocal tracks and a nicely matched partner for the piano.

Certainly one of the most distinctive and beautiful new-music albums of recent times.
