Welch, Matthew - Dream Tigers

SKU TZ8015
Matthew Welch is a young composer who blends his Scottish roots and skills as a bagpipe virtuoso with folk music and Indonesian Gamelan. His first CD for Tzadik presents three pieces that should establish Welch as an important new voice in the contemporary music firmament. First is a remarkable new string quartet, complex and lyrical, taking the work of composers such as Aaron Copland, Lou Harrison and Ben Johnston into the 21st Century. Meticulously performed by the brilliant Flux Quartet, Siubhal Turnlar is a masterpiece. Also included is a subtle drone piece for multiple clarinets exploring difference tones and a spectacular concerto for bagpipes and percussion with Welch himself as soloist. A trio of three compositions from a young composer starting out strong on the visionary trail of contemporary composition.[Tzadik]
