Edwin Roxburgh: Solo and Duos

Notes & Reviews:

The diverse activities of performing, conducting and teaching have been constant motivations to Edwin Roxburgh's principal profession, composing. The works on this new release are inspired by the virtuosic skill of the performers featured on this recording - many of them past students - and they are joined by the composer himself in his meditative and transcendent work for oboe and electronics, At the Still Point of the Turning World in which the sound of the oboe is fed through various delay effects. This work was first performed in 1979 under the direction of electro-acoustic pioneer, Barry Anderson who operated the analogue ‘delay table' - which was initially designed for a performance of Stockhausen's Solo - with the help of twelve technicians.
