- Sarah Cahill (Piano)
Notes & Reviews:
This strangely beautiful and sometimes clangorous four-movement piano solo is performed by the much-lauded pianist and new music champion Sarah Cahill, who commissioned the work. The composer writes about the piece: "Each of the transparent and self-contained movements takes as inspiration a Chinese poem or Japanese haiku ... Each movement is like a single image, simply stated with relatively little temporal or thematic development - very much like the poems they are based on." Garland is a long-time associate of the Cold Blue label; his music has appeared on five of the label's previous CDs. After the Wars is a 20-minute CDEP.
Garland's music seems to be about the sheer expressive power of sound itself.
