<<  -- 3 --  Patric Standford    REFRESHING REPERTOIRE

-------------------------------

There are also five splendid Miniatures by Eurico Carrapatoso (born 1962) heard as a generous homage to Stravinsky and Poulenc and to Portuguese folksong. They end with a lovely chorale [listen -- track 26, 0:01-0:56].

And there are solo pieces too. Três Fragmentos by António Pinho Vargas (born 1951), a jazz musician prominent in contemporary music circles, is for solo clarinet. The Panic Flirt [listen -- track 19, 2:28-3:28] for solo flute, an allusion to the infamous Greek god, is by Alexandre Delgado (born 1965). A refreshing repertoire brilliantly played.
