Notes & Reviews:
It is important to point out that the South African-born London composer David Earl followed eight years of preparation and study in order to be ordained, in 2001, into the Western Buddhist Order, receiving the name Akashadeva ("deity of etheric space"). These beliefs help form his aesthetic and ideological approaches to composition. Both a pianist and composer, his concerto repertoire includes many of the core works, as well as British music of the 20th century. His own output includes several ballets, concertos and chamber music. The Cello Sonata is a predominantly inward-looking work, and the Suite's subtitle refers to the Buddhist tradition in which mandalas are devotional images consisting of symmetrical patterns, which are said to exist for the benefit of sentient beings – informing, protecting and enlightening.
