Editorial Reviews

With the Heather and Small Birds was inspired by poetry of Welsh bard John Ceiriog Hughes. Tann pays homage throughout the work to several Welsh hymns and folk songs. The seed of inspiration for the alto saxophone concerto, In the First, Spinning Place came from Fern Hill, a high-spirited poem about youth from Welsh poet, Dylan Thomas. From the Feather to the Mountain was motivated by images of clouds, landscapes and mountains near Tann's residence in the Adirondacks. A rhapsody for violin and orchestra, Here, The Cliffs was influenced by a striking rock formation near Tann's home in South Wales. From Afar was inspired by Hilary Tann's lengthy stay and travels in and around Kyoto, Japan.

Format: Audio CD
Listen through high end audio or excellent headphones. Then you'll get the poise and cohesion the composer intended. This is very approachable, stirred up, pastoral music that demands we stay mentally engaged all the time and it bears no resemblance to escapist dreamy music that "lulls" us with meandering, bland pleasantries. It's a pleasant and rewarding challenge to relisten. I pay no attention to the landscapes it's supposed to be linked to. I listen to it as I listen to Milhaud orchestral music, with the added advantage of having Hilary Tann's humanizing, non-combativeness. This is worthy and engrossing music that is always fresh upon relistening.
