Fox, Chistopher: Works For Piano, Philip Thomas piano (Hat [now] ART)

Label: Hat [now] ART    
Released in: Switzerland    

"What can be written that is not immediately obvious and clear when these piano works by Christopher Fox are heard, even for the first time? At the same time, how can (and why should) words begin to hint at the mysterious and elusive qualities that lie beneath the surface of this music? Perhaps better would be to describe why I have chosen to play and commission music by Christopher over the past twelve years; and the reasons, I realise, are some of the very best reasons for listening to and championing any music. Firstly there is a compelling directness about his music - the material is strong and clear, well-defined, transparent, immediately lending each piece a distinct character."-Philip Thomas
