Crosse/ Finnissy/ Goehr/ Matthews : Wavesongs

Featuring an outstanding and virtuoso cello & piano duo, long committed to contemporary music, this recording showcases works by six composers at the forefront of British music and includes Crosse's profound and majestic Wavesongs.

"This is an excellent showcase of British compositional talent and an effective antidote for anyone who thinks contemporary music has either gone soft of remains stubbornly modernist, neither of which is the case."
The Strad 1994
