Summerland

William Grant Still's study in late-summer's hush, a Bavarian knees-up by Elgar and Judith Weir's shimmering Ave regina caelorum to close.

William Grant Still's study in late-summer's hush, a Bavarian knees-up by Elgar and Judith Weir's shimmering Ave regina caelorum to close. There's Baroque minimalism with a Praeludium by Carl Friedrich Abel too, and Philip Glass's Third String Quartet (Mishima) arranged for saxophone quartet. And there's a mesmeric hymn to Moses from Greece and the gambolling scherzo from Schumann's Piano Quintet in E flat.
