Over the past 40 years Eddie McGuire, British Composer Award winner and Creative Scotland Award winner, has developed a compositional style that is as diverse as it is concentrated. This disc surveys a selection of his solo and chamber works, written for his home instruments, flute, guitar, and piano.
The writing, whilst embracing tonality, focuses on texture and aspects of colour, drawing on a myriad folk influences. The listener cannot help being drawn in to McGuire’s evocative sound-world, at once bold and playful.
“…McGuire writes in a tonally based, folk-inflected style that seems effortlessly to conjure up those emotions he wishes to evoke without recourse to cliché or glib sentimentality - this is quite simply beautiful music.”
