Matthew Bourne – Isotach (The Leaf Label)
Something about the spareness and spaciousness of this music went perfectly with cool breezy nights in the middle of nowhere French countryside lately.
Piano and cello is all that’s involved for the most part...
...well that and the essential element of the room in which it was recorded.
Long cello bows.
Hanging piano notes.
Plus of course the unbeatable touch of Mr Bourne.
Classical music (if you wish) with a wonderful feel and tons of heart.
A beautiful record.
