FERNEYHOUGH: TERRAIN - ELISION ENSMEBLE; GRAEME JENNINGS; GEOFFREY MORRIS; CARL ROSMAN; ERKKI VELTHEIM; FRANCK OLLU; JEAN DEROYER
These are very fine performances, beautifully captured. It would be invidious to single out any of the soloists, all of whom acquit themselves handsomely; but perhaps the two guitarists deserve special mention nonetheless...even amid lively competition this new recording has something special to offer.
