Letters to the World

George Nicholson, born in 1949, studied at the University of York with David Blake and Bernard Rands. His music, as heard here, is always beautifully crafted, technically demanding, certainly not easy to play but eminently accessible for the composer always sees to it that it communicates directly by way of its invention, its imagination and its vitality.

Though some of it has already been recorded (his Third String Quartet [METIER MSV CD 92016] and his song cycle Peripheral Visions [METIER MSV CD 92025]), George Nicholson's music is still too little-heard and recorded. The present release, again from METIER, is thus the only one so far entirely devoted to Nicholson's works. With the exception of Nodus (1978), all other pieces here are fairly recent being written between 1988 and 1997.
