Robert Saxton : A Yardstick to the Stars



Glittering piano quintet A Yardstick to the Stars explores the notions of time, distance and planetary motion; it is coupled with song-cycle Eloge, Fantazia for string quartet, and Chacony, a virtuosic set of variations for piano left hand.

"A generous disc of chamber works which reinforces Saxtonís position at the heart of contemporary British music... the effect of the whole is to reinforce Saxtonís claim as one of the most significant figures on the current British scene. This disc deserves every success."
Gramophone 2000
