ABOUT THIS CD

Colin Eatock is a composer, critic and musicologist. The six works recorded on this disc were composed over the last quarter-century, which he has spent living in Toronto. This is intimate music: a mixture of vocal and instrumental works scored for one to four musicians. As well, the pieces reflect Eatock’s musical influences. Often, there is a historical aspect to his music, with stylistic ideas from past eras incorporated (overtly or covertly) into his works. Represented on this disc are some of Eatock’s literary influences: William Blake, Walt Whitman and Alfred Tennyson.

"Eatock’s clear affinity is with the gentle interplay of dissonance and consonance, of rubbing tones and overtones up against each other and enjoying the resulting rainbow effects … Much of the music is very simple, with clearly articulated melodies, dialogue, counterpoint and chord progressions — but this kind of simplicity is deceptive, as it’s the product of careful thought and deliberate structure." - John Terauds.

"Eatock’s compositions are carefully written works that accommodate the performers while pushing them to enter his harmonic nuances. All the musicians on this studio release recorded at various time since 1999 are superb in their interpretations. Recording quality is of an equally high standard." - The WholeNote
