Samuel, Rhian: Blythswood. Three pieces for Viola and Piano
Rhian Samuel’s fresh and stimulating vocal and instrumental works have earned her an enviable reputation as a composer willing to tackle challenging subjects and a variety of musical forms. The three contrasting pieces of Blythswood were written at Glaick in Scotland, on the mainland across from Skye, and each one evokes in terms of seascape or memory the idea of the ‘distant view’.
Blythswood has been recorded by Su Zhen and Simon Lepper on their critically acclaimed disc – Stone Records (5060192780352)
