is an inspired response to the intricate and inventive flow that is the genius of Bach. Fingerprint
pairs the young Bach’s Capriccio for keyboard with the D Major Toaccata, a bright and forthright celebration of both subtlety and bravura. Nigredo
, a sequence of intimate and intricate duets, was created by Richard Alston for RADC’s acclaimed 2007 project with the Society for the Promotion of New Music, to piano music by the British composer Simon Holt. Brink
puts a new slant on Tango Nuevo, arranged here for the accordion by Japanese composer Ayuo. Sharp and dramatic duets reflect a contemporary twist on tango, driving it to the edge. (Chor: Martin Lawrance). Lazy River
features a collection of songs from Hoagy Carmichael including Riverboat Shuffle, Georgia, Old Man Harlem and Star Dust. This toe-tapping, knee-jiggling music gets the whole company moving.
