New Zealand-born Edinburgh-based Lyell Cresswell has composed works for orchestra, chamber ensemble, choir, voice and solo instruments which have been widely performed and broadcast.

In The Voice Inside, he explores the ever-changing relationship between the soprano and violin soloists and the orchestra, while Cassandra’s Songs, which also set words by Scottish poet Ron Butlin, is concerned with exile, identity and belonging.

Alas! How Swift embodies in musical terms the inescapable passing of Time.

His Trombone Concerto takes its name Kaea from the Maori wooden war trumpet used to terrify enemies and raise alarms.

“Wonderful music, of great communicative power… I hope that it will lead to more recordings of Cresswell’s well-crafted and expressive music.” MusicWeb International on a previous release
