Volume 1 of this series devoted to Augusta Read Thomas’s music concentrated upon orchestral and concertante works, with the intention of giving the listener a sense of this composer’s virtuosic command of large forces allied to a kaleidoscopic sense of colour and a formal fluidity which defies attempts at cut-and-dried analysis. Volume 2 also emphasizes the latter two attributes, but does so by shifting focus on music of a more intimate nature. Six of the nine works gathered here are for various chamber combinations. The other three, which occupy the greater part of this album’s playing time, are solo piano works, and span the entire chronological range of this collection.
