 Thomas Hyde enjoys writing chamber music above all other mediums: it seems to demand from him a particular kind of concentration of technique, as well as providing the opportunity for greater subtlety in his use of instrumental colours. He also relishes the opportunity to write really virtuosic music for individual players. Three Dancers is a short ‘curtain raiser’ for piano trio, taking its inspiration from a painting by Picasso, while both Autumnal and the String Quartet – his two most extended chamber works – arise out of seasonal imagery; the latter being an emotional journey from the crisis of winter to the rebirth of spring. The Second Suite for solo Cello is the earliest work, composed when he was a student at the Royal Academy of Music, and a series of shorter works, Winter Music, Nocturnes for solo piano and a little Birthday Song for string quartet complete this varied collection.

"... All of the performers on this disc are quite fine ... I commend it [the disc] to your attention as the work of a young composer with some good musical ideas."

Lynn René Bayley - Fanfare - September/October 2013


"... All of this music is really enjoyable, even the 12-tone elements in the quartet. This is a fine program introducing a fine composer, played with involvement and afection by a group of musicin that I hop will keep Hyde writing for them. The recording is in excellent sound and the balances are effective."

David Moore  The American Record Guide - September/October 2013


"... A suitably committed reading by the Iuventus Quartet is no doubt a factor in this latter piece’s favourable impression, but  then Hyde is fortunate in that his music has gained the advocacy of several leading soloists and ensembles, not least cellist Katherine Jenkinson and pianist Evelina Puzite, whose playing here is all that an up-and-coming composer could wish. The recording has the clarity and definition needed in what are often intricate textures, while Hyde contributes a frank and personable overview on each works. A fine introduction, then, to a composer of whom it is shoped that Guild will follow up with another release at the earliest opportunity."
