Chamber Music by Walter Cardew Group

Chamber Music by Walter Cardew Group.

". . . it has a very special atmosphere of gloomy rejoicing, like a dance of Breugal peasants. . ." Roger Scruton, March 2014

". . . think of Satie’s furniture music principles imbued with Stravinskian aloofness. Cardew’s melodic lines are exquisitely turned, with occasional unruly climaxes or deep-integrated improvisations. . . " read Philip Clark's review of Chamber Music in February's edition of Wire magazine here

Hear Duet 43/2 from the CD here. Featuring Helen Whitaker (flute/alto flute) and Walter Cardew (AIFF file, 54MB, opens in new window)
