CHAMBER MUSIC IV:

MUSIC FOR WINDS I

Music by Stephen Dodgson

The Magnard Ensemble with Suling King (piano) and Kate Howden (mezzo-soprano) present this fourth album in the Toccata Classics survey of the chamber music of London-born Stephen Dodgson (1924–2013) offers a first instalment of his many works for woodwinds. Much of it brings Dodgson’s sense of fun to the fore, often through rhythmic mischief or an insouciance that recalls Poulenc, but it also has that particularly English strain of lyricism that suggests the impermanence of beauty.
