Warp and Weft

Warp and Weft, EMR CD043

Midori Komachi (violin), Sophie Rosa (violin) Simon Callaghan (piano)

Featuring works for two violins, ‘Warp & Weft’ brings together a fascinating variety of works written for this instrumentation by 20th- and 21st-century British composers. It is a unique exploration, in which the two violins interweave lines to make a web of sound. In addition to two World Première recordings by Gordon Jacob and Paul Patterson, the disc also includes some of the most inspiring yet rarely recorded works by Rebecca Clarke, E.J. Moeran and Alan Rawsthorne.
