DODGSON, S.: Guitar Chamber Works - Change-Ringers / Divertissement / 4 Poems of John Clare / The Selevan Story (Mēla Guitar Quartet)

Stephen Dodgson’s work embraced a wide variety of genres but, encouraged by Julian Bream in the 1950s, he became one of the most prolific and respected 20th-century composers for guitar. Including a première recording of the ingenious Change-Ringers, the chamber works on this recording make use of a fascinating palette of tonal colours, taking us on an unconventional and often witty journey of rhythmic excitement, serenity, dissonance and beauty.
