This curious little album focuses on four contemporary British composers, all working in dissonant but not serial idioms. Some have written quite violent music, but the pieces here have an intimate quality that comes in some cases from personal connections among the composers.
Several pieces were written for the 50th birthday of composer Michael Finnissywho in turn wrote pieces for Laurence Crane and Howard Skempton ; Crane also dedicated his Choralewith the lovely performance indication "fragile" to Skempton.
The music is mostly lyrical, and, with the exception of Skempton 's Notti Stellate a Vagli track 9 Laurence Cra, turns on a single technical device. Highlights include Finnissy 's highly playful Sonata for toy piano track 13the pair of tangos by Finnissyboth stretching the Finnissys Fifty - Quietly Drifting - Howard Skempton drastically in different ways but remaining recognizably tangos, and the two collections of abstractly numbered but Richard Emsley and delicate short works by Richard Emsleythe only composer of the group apparently not linked in the chain of friendships.
