This is a disc of music for chamber ensembles and solo performers written by two of Britain’s leading women composers, who also happen to be mother and daughter.   Sparklingly presented by Okeanos, comprising several leading contemporary music performers.
 

“Exquisite performances…all quite fascinating. I can only advise that you hunt the CD out. Some of the sounds on it will haunt you hours after you have returned it to its case.”

Gary Higginson

Music Web

“I welcome a new CD on the Metier label of music by Elizabeth Maconchy and her daughter Nicola Lefanu, for mother and daughter are equally significant figures in British music and yet inhabit very different artistic milieux. These very varied works are performed by the eight musicians who make up Okeanos, a recently formed new music group. Mother and daughter are very well served by them, and the recordings are excellent.”
