Christopher Fox, according to pianist Ian Pace, is one of the few British composers to have managed to move beyond the problems and questions posed by modernism; certainly his is a voice most distinctive, interesting and entertaining.. no more so than on this fine record.
“Christopher Fox merges often complex technical procedures into sensuous streams of sound that beguile as well as fascinate the ear.”
“This is music where the apparently bland exterior discloses a wealth of invention on repeated listening. Pianist Ian Pace’s performances are exceptional and insightful.” *****
’10 Records For Christmas 1998’
“This disc is a good introduction to the work of a composer (b 1955) who is both an interesting conceptualist and a craftsman well able to realise his ideas in an aurally satisfying way. Pace plays with clarity and fervour throughout.”
