John Woolrich : The Ghost in the Machine

Four major orchestral works by John Woolrich: The Barber's Timepiece, inspired by a short story by Italo Calvino; the Oboe Concerto; The Ghost in the Machine, which explores the idea of order sliding into chaos; and the lyrical Viola Concerto.

Editorís Choice: "A strong and individual voice in music of real substance. The fine soloists bring the concertos vividly to life. Well worth exploring."
Gramophone 2001
