One American composer, Morton Feldman, somewhat notorious for his sometimes epic works, and one British, uncompromisingly individual and a leader in the field of "non-traditional" sounds; the two have quite a lot in common.  Here, both present chamber works which are (relatively) orthodox, yet still at the cutting edge of quality modern music.

“This inspiringly abstract disc juxtaposes two items for clarinet and string quartet, both of which are essentially reflections on the medium, the sonority itself. Heaton plays beautifully, as does the quartet.”

Paul Driver

The Sunday Times

“This CD is a good ’way in’ to both composers. I had two hours of pleasure from playing this one twice through and thinking about it.”

Peter Grahame Woolf

Musical Pointers

“[The Feldman] is a wonderful showcase… its gradations of rhythm and colour become endlessly fascinating. Fox’s Quintet… confers enormous significance on the smallest nuance.”   ***

Andrew Clements

The Guardian

“Patterns, reflections, repetitions, colour and subtlety are in attendance in both cases, whether it’s the more extensive hypnosis of Feldman or the more active localised dramas of Fox.”
