Recording Matthews 15 Fugues

Posted on August 20th, 2010 by

On the 17th and 18th August, I recorded the extraordinary cycle of 15 Fugues written for me by David Matthews. This is a logical addition to the cycle of quartets and other chamber music by David which we (Kreutzer Quartet + ) are recording for Toccata Classics. These works are not virtuoso stunts, but true chamber music, just for one instrument.

Here is an outtake from one of them, No. 7, dedicated to Judith Bingham
