CD of contemporary piano music, performed by Graham Caskie. Michael Tippett Sonata No.3 "There is majesty here and much musical "soul"." Fanfare, Aug / Sept 1999. John McCabe Fantasy on a Theme of Liszt. "The Fantasy on a Theme of Liszt (1967) is drawn from the opening theme of Liszt's Faust Symphony. That theme is never quite heard note-for-note anywhere in the piece but serves as the driving force for the music's ebb and flow of often colorfully dissonant passages of calm and turmoil in virtuoso Romantic style." Fanfare, Aug / Sept 1999. Paul Patterson A Tunnel of Time " The work's opening Vivace is an homage to Stravinsky, specifically by reprising the nervous energy of the latter's 1919 Piano Rag Music. A quiet inner section is then followed by a tumbling Allegro molto e scherzando that reflects the vigor of the music's beginning." Fanfare, Aug / Sept 1999. Nigel Clarke Solstice Solstice evokes images of pagan rites which have been (and indeed still are) witnessed at Stonehenge and other ancient sites and "has some of the strongest imagery to be heard". Fanfare, Aug / Sept 1999.
