Composers of Wales (2011)

The first in a series of six CDs produced in association with Cyfansoddwyr Cymru/Composers of Wales, and organisation founded to represent and promote the new music of Wales. The overall intention of the series is to feature as many composers from, or working in, Wales as possible, with the aim to create a truly representative snapshot covering the broadest spectrum of music. Some names will be familiar, others not. Living composers of all generations will be represented and, for some, their music will be heard on CD for the first time.
