Catalogue Number: 10N076
Label: Canary Classics
Description: In his more recent music, Edwards has departed from at least some of the conventions of Western concert music, incorporating influences from the East in an attempt to explore the spiritual and regenerative power of music. For all its meditative nature and the modal and pentatonic scales employed, the evocation of the gamelan and so on, the concerto sounds like a violin concerto, with a florid (though not especially showy) solo part, including a cadenza. Adele Anthony (violin), Adelaide Symphony Orchestra; Arvo Volmer.
