Thomas Wilson: a chamber portrait

An influential figure both personally and musically, Thomas Wilson (1927–2001) was the leading light in a group of composers whose vision and technical assurance brought an international modernism into 20th-century Scottish music. In the chamber works collected here, moments of extraordinary stillness continually release into fast, propulsive music whose compelling energies are matched by the individual and collective virtuosity of pianist Simon Smith, guitarist Allan Neave and the Edinburgh Quartet.
