"In Conversation" - a must-have for lovers of Scottish fiddle music
This is a really wonderful debut album, a must-have for lovers of Scottish fiddle music. The tracks include original works by Calum Pasqua, some well-known Scottish tunes and some (to me at least) lesser known works. In particular there is a lot of music composed by Gordon Duncan, which was completely unknown to me. It is all played with tremendous feeling and virtuosity by Calum, so that you really feel you are “in conversation” with him, his accompanist Susi Petrov and guest artist, Dan Houghton. The very first track immediately grabs your attention with a dramatic piano opening followed by a heart-rending melody composed by Calum. The next track provides a complete contrast, starting with a really swinging tune by Calum linked up to a spectacular piece by Gordon Duncan, our first introduction to this composer. All through the album there seems to have been an effort to provide this kind of contrast between the tracks and also to provide a variety of texture and mood – fantastic. My current favourite piece is “Sleeping Tune” by Gordon Duncan, an absolutely haunting, lyrical, almost spiritual melody which I’m using to accompany one of my yoga routines... incidentally, the same track (track 4) continues with three superb quick-time tunes (providing a growing contrast with the first tune) which are also brilliant. What more can I say? I only hope that this is just the beginning and that Calum goes on to make lots more albums, very, very soon. Actually, what about an album dedicated just to Scottish Country Dance music? Some of the standard repertoire sorely needs re-recording, and there is of course an ever-increasing number of new dances (thousands!) which are looking for tunes to match them. One final point – if you like Hanneke Cassel’s music (also available on Cdbaby) then I think you’ll love this album. What is it about North America that seems to produce such inspired Scottish fiddlers?
