John Purser - Dreaming of Islands
This is a brilliant new recording released by Dr. John Purser, producer of Ms. Rideout's "Scottish Fiddle Piobaireachd vols. I and II" and "HARLAW 1411". It consists of his original contemporary classical compositions. In his words he describes some of the tracks: "The classical music of the Highland bagpipes has inspired Luis for solo violin, and Wai Taheke for solo flute. Both respond to the rhythms of nature and are musically and technically demanding. The rhythms of nature also dictate the music of the Clavier Sonata and Skyelines, though they are in a different idiom." The title and opening tracks were composed for and played by Bonnie Rideout.
