danza! The Music of Dance


A fascinating juxtaposition of works, Tom Kerstens’ danza! combines charming 19th-century works with new commissions for IGF, all centred around the concept of the dance miniature. Pieces by Piazzolla, Villa-Lobos, Falla and Tárrega and joined by new works from Howard Skempton, Philip Cashian, Alastair King, Edward McGuire, Graham Fitkin and Errollyn Wallen.

What people are saying

“The first half of the disc is devoted to established works by Brouwer, Villa-Lobos, and several more of the usual suspects, while the second half is a delightful flurry of new commissions from some of our liveliest contemporary composers, such as Howard Skempton, Errolyn Wallen, and Graham Fitkin.” International Record Review
