Lyell Cresswell, one of New Zealand's most distinguished composers, is represented on this recording by three examples of his mastery of the orchestral sound world. His Piano Concerto is cast in seven movements, written in memory of his fellow composer Edward Harper, and suffused in expressive intensity, by turns grieving and unsettled. Landscapes of the Soul explores affinities between music and art through imaginary landscape patterns. The Concerto for Orchestra and String Quartet is ingeniously constructed and pursues the idea of progression from solo voices, to quartet interplay and finally to a unanimous voice.
