By John Carmichael

Regular price $25.00 Sale

 Chamber music by John Carmichael.  In this recording, melody and thematic material are the starting points in the process of creating a well wrought musical structure designed to engage the interest of the listener.
In the words of the composer, “Music has always been for me an escape into a fantasy world where imagined landscapes, images and adventures engage and delight, so the portmanteau title ‘Escapades’ for this disc can serve to encompass all the works therein".
Escapades is performed by Sylvie Leprohon flute, Stephen Robinson oboe, Antony Gray piano.
