McLachlan is one of the established Camilleri specialists; performer and composer worked together on this CD of music (first recordings in each case) some of which was especially written for this disc. Camilleri’s music is very special - atmospheric, mystical but also full of life and vigour
"The CD opens with a take on Paganini’s 24th Caprice in a quirky, high-energy rendition for piano four-hands. The individuality and allure of Camilleri’s brief set of variations serve as an accessible introduction to the unique music on the balance of the disc".
"More than enough genuinely original music to make this CD well worth acquiring... Murray McLachlan’s performances are excellent throughout... recording is excellent"
"Like Messiaen, the Maltese composer Charles Camilleri rarely shirks the big issues. One set of pieces on this new release is named Cosmologies, another is Celestial Harmonies. Individiual titles include Constellations, Colours of Time and Cosmic Dance. Touches of Turangalila in the exploration of time and space? Indeed, except that the impulse behind these works is the folk music of Malta.
The result is often very beautiful; refined in line and texture, haunting yet spare and superbly captured by this Manchester pianist"
