This CD combines the music of Francis Poulenc and Tim Ewers. Both composers share an interest in melodic line with Ewers continuing the Poulenc tradition in a more contemporary idiom. In the title track, Following On, Ewers takes a fragment of the Poulenc oboe sonata as his starting point, but develops it in a very different, but equally melodious manner. The playing, as always with the Fibs, is superb, the sumptuous tone colour of the winds supported by Kathron Sturrock’s detailed and supremely musical pianism. All the Ewers pieces appear on CD for the first time.
