Sample: 3:20 - 4:20 of 'Precious Legacy Suite'
Sample: no description
Both suites of music on this CD are in response to very specific feelings and historical ideas. Mr Darwin's Dances is influenced by Roger McDonald's novel Mr Darwin's Shooter: "I was taken on a journey on the salty decks of history through Roger's inspired language". Precious Legacy is Besser's response to an exhibition of Jewish treasures from the Holocaust: "It was an important opportunity to reflect on the enormity of feelings that the Holocaust evokes. My People, my culture, my history, my century".
