Description: You already know how melodic, tonal and approachable Blake is, well-known as he is for his film scores. Here we have a concert suite from A Month in the Country and an excerpt from The Snowman; Leda and the Swan (1977) is a sensual and atmospheric short ballet piece and the other two pieces, "pure" concert music, are as attractive as the rest. Edinburgh Quartet.
