About this Recording

BLAKE, H.: Spieltrieb / String Trio / A Month in the Country (Edinburgh Quartet)

Howard Blake is well known for his superbly effective film scores, and this programme brings première string quartet recordings of the award-winning music for A Month in the Country and the famous Walking in the Air theme from The Snowman. New discoveries emerge in the sensual and atmospheric ballet Leda and the Swan, and a specially revised String Trio. One of Britain’s foremost and senior ensembles, The Edinburgh Quartet celebrated its fiftieth anniversary with the commission of Blake’s dramatic Spieltrieb.
