Notes & Reviews:

"This is the fourth release in Chandos's series of piano and chamber music by Scottish composer John Blackwood McEwen. Each new installment has brought fresh discoveries and pleasures. McEwen's music is sensuous, lucid, richly tonal, and fastidiously crafted, combining Dvorakian melodiousness and sure handling of classical forms with modal and impressionist harmonic shadings indebted to Faure and Ravel." - Lehman, ARG
