This recording presents a survey of Rob Keeley’s chamber works, from the Skalkottas tribute Bells of Halkis to the Satie-esque ’Gallic’ of trio Oregon Moods.
Bayan Northcott writes of the composer: ’Rob Keeley is both a ‘natural’ as a composer, and a bit of an enigma... his omnivorous ear has absorbed more ‘advanced’ techniques, from Ligeti, perhaps, or Birtwistle, but in his own way.’
 
Rob Keeley was born in Bridgend in 1960. He studied with Oliver Knussen at the Royal College of Music, Magdalen College Oxford under Bernard Rose, and later with Robert Saxton. As a pianist Keeley has premiered works by, among others, Harrison Birtwistle, Michael Finnissy, Jonathan Cole, Richard Emsley and Nicola Moro. He is currently Senior Lecturer in Composition at King’s College, London = Bayan Northcott writes ... Rob Keeley is both a ‘natural’ as a composer, and a bit of an enigma. While his music always unfolds lucidly, often engagingly, it resists easy categorization – at least accordingly to current critical notions. 
 
"… a living testament to the virtues of concision and aural exactitude"
