SIMAKU, T.: Solos and Duos for Violin and Piano - Signals / Capriccioso / Soliloquy V / ENgREnage / 2 Esquisses (Sheppard Skærved, Houston, Chadwick)

Thomas Simaku, whose music has been described as ‘visionary and entirely original’ is one of the most fascinating and important of contemporary composers. His blend of intensity and modernism is exemplified in this selection of chamber and instrumental works, all performed by the dedicatees, each of which reveals different facets of his art. Playfulness of texture can be savoured in Signals, whereas virtuosity is a feature of Capriccioso. The architecture and vocal quality of ENgREnage show the rich variety of contrasts and harmonic colours that Simaku evokes in his music.
