These three solo harpsichord pieces are a collection of recent compositions, each with an individual theme and idea. The first, The convertibility of Lute Strings, was first performed at the Purcell Room, London in 1992. The second, Tango for Tim was written in memory of a friend and composer Tim Souster, which was composed and first performed in 1994. The third piece, Elisabeth Gets Her Way, is an extended version of the cadenza which Elisabeth Chojnacka persuaded Michael Nyman to add to his Harpsichord Concerto, which includes material from the first two pieces in this album.

Rating Review
Customer Rating A superb set of pieces from the successful British composer. Unlike the collections of film music for solo piano, these pieces demonstrate an exploration of percussive and rhythmic devices that create tension as well great excitement. The austerity of 'Tango For Tim' is one of the highlights in this collection, mixing high rhythmic drama with more meditative sections in a typically Nymanesque minor mode that is as emotive as it is searching.

I cannot recommend this collection enough to any harpsichordist willing to expand their repertoire.
