David Dubery is a fine example of a modern composer refusing to be boxed in by boundaries, and like a growing number of his contemporaries, has developed a thoroughly individual, yet traditionally tonal and lyrical, style. Dubery’s special gift for enchantingly beautiful melodies is well demonstrated here as is the wide range of impressionist, abstract and quasi-autobiographical works, all of which are an absolute joy..

This recording was kindly supported by the Manchester Musical Heritage Trust

"... highly recommended..."

David DeBoor Canfield - Fanfare -September/October 2012


"...His [Dubery] music has a traditional flavor to it, and the pieces recorded here are for recorder, oboe, and cello, along with a number of quite lovely songs sung with  beautiful intonation and clear diction by Murray... All of the performers here are competent and seem to be enjoying themselves. I enjoyed it a good deal."

D Moore - American Record Guide - August 2012


“David Dubery is firmly among … contemporary composers [who] are content to explore creatively more conventional forms and idioms and in doing so to present players and listeners with a very different set of challenges and rewards [than the cutting edge of modernity]… this music is indeed a treat for listeners too.”

Andrew Mayes - Recorder Magazine


“This is attractive and inoffensive music. Dubery writes in a lyrical and accessible vein. The performances are all of a reasonably high standard with an impressive line-up of artists..”

Em Marshall-Luck - Albion Magazine


“Fascinating musical journey… [Dubery] works in a traditional musical language that is approachable, but sometimes demanding. The masterpiece in my opinion is the Cello Sonata… must surely enter the repertoire. There is not a bar of this piece that is not interesting, enjoyably and satisfying. All in all this is a great ‘retrospective’ CD of music by the Mancunian composer David Dubery. Let us hope that over the coming years many other works from his catalogue find their way into the recording studio.”
