Lyell Cresswell is one of New Zealand’s most important contemporary composers. He has written for most genres and settings across a broad classical spectrum, but much of his chamber music (particularly songs and piano works) remains unrecorded – until now. This recording addresses that – with a vengeance.

The Art of Black and White is a succinct overview of Lyell's often witty but always precisely focused chamber music. The compositions were composed over a long period and highlight the diverse quality of his output. Recognised as a significant voice in contemporary music, Lyell's achievements in Europe attest to his international standing.

The recording of his piano works is long overdue and this album will be welcomed and appreciated by music lovers here and abroad. Stephen de Pledge is the ideal pianist for this material. He has established himself as a committed and superb advocate of New Zealand music for many years. Accompanying him on this celebration of Lyell's chamber music are two exceptional muscians, tenor Christopher Bowen and soprano Jennifer Maybee.

Stephen de Pledge (piano); Christopher Bowen (voice); Jennifer Maybee (voice)
