Dreaming of Islands
Dreaming of Islands features settings of two of the greatest of Gaelic poets, Ian Crichton Smith and Sorley MacLean. In addition, two of the pieces are based on pìobaireachd, a form of Gaelic pipe music which is both musically and technically demanding. Pìobaireachd moves with the rhythms of nature, and these also dictate the music of the Clavier Sonata and Skyelines, though they are in a different idiom.
“An hour’s worth of absolutely gorgeous music in the most seductive instrumental and vocal settings, all magically played and sung by the listed artists.”
