What The Critics Are Saying…

Melodic and tonal with a spare lyricism and simple harmonic language which recalls early music and the distinctly “English” soundworlds, as well as folk music with occasional jazz-infused harmonies. Beautifully crafted and performed with elegance and expression… the refined simplicity of Braid’s music is really captivating and it is a real pleasure to hear music which is immediately engaging to the ear. Highly recommended.

” —Frances Wilson, The Cross-Eyed Pianist

All the pieces on this CD are new compositions from this year, but organist Erik Simmons plays them as confidently as if he’d known them for years… they are all distinctively different and varied in style, expression and technique. Quite fascinating!

” —Jean-Yves Duperron, Classical Music Sentinel

I enjoyed these four imaginative compositions. The big work on this disc is Il Ritorno: … magical and deeply-felt… quite beautiful. Each work is finely played, and (in my opinion) perfectly interpreted by the two soloists. Rose is a composer who can develop and maintain interest using the slenderest of instrumental resources.

” —John France, MusicWeb International

playful Allegro con fuoco finale.” – Remy Franck (Pizzicato)

Wyllie has a flair for sound colours and tempi, with a secure technical and artistic touch. Given the somewhat exotic touch of the programme it is advisable to give these interesting tidbits a bite.
