Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Eatock is a composer, critic, and musicologist. The six works recorded on this disc were composed over the last quarter-century, which he has spent living in Toronto. This is intimate music, a mixture of vocal and instrumental works scored for one to four musicians. The pieces reflect Eatock's musical influences. Often, there is a historical aspect to his music, with stylistic ideas from past eras incorporated into his works. And there are also literary influences: Williams Blake, Walt Whitman and Alfred Tennyson are all represented on this disc.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
As my descriptions indicate, I found this particularly moving. I hope to hear him again, and I recommend this strongly to music lovers who are moved by the romantic side of the music of today. This composer writes with conviction and imagination, and these are all very expressive works performed with love.
