Sample: from 'Very slow and mysterious - for Debussy'
Composer Anthony Ritchie follows in the footsteps of Bach, Chopin, Shostakovich and Debussy by using the centuries-old tradition of twenty-four preludes to experiment writing in all equal-tempered major and minor keys. Along with his own musical style and tendencies, Ritchie has transported modern analytical theory such as Tone-Clock technique and Magic Squares into the tradition – in turn paying tribute to his national contemporaries Jenny McLeod and Gillian Whitehead. This anthology of piano preludes is performed by Sharon Vogan.
