This recording was originally made by Dunelm Records on limited release in 2006 and is now re-released at mid-price – now on one disc rather than two.

Each composer represented here was an important innovator in different ways; one need only think of how The Rite of Spring shocked the world; they are also linked by a deep interest in folk music. The two major works with percussion are worthy of close comparison, that of Bartók being more austere and ‘early-modernist’ than Camilleri’s rich and neo-Romantic work of 70 years later. The percussive score of The Rite of Spring makes it ideal in a two piano form and this transcription is that of Stravinsky himself.

The four performers are high achievers in the UK as both soloists, chamber/orchestral players and in academia. Murray McLachlan, a tireless champion of new music, is now one of our most popular and prolific artists.
