Giles Swayne’s works for cello exhibit an astonishing array of moods and colours. The restless beauty of Four Lyrical Pieces and strident romanticism of the Sonata offer remarkable counterpoint to his Suite for solo cello. Canto seduces the listener with its symbiotic blend of African traditional and Western art music.
"Irvine and Pavri are persuasive exponents of this repertoire…"
"Delphian follows up its disc of Giles Swayne's characterful and accomplished choral music with this survey of his compositions for solo cello and cello and piano. Superbly played by the Glasgow-based duo of Robert Irvine and Fali Pavrí, it's recorded with trademark spaciousness and clarity."
