Product details

Tarantella was written at the request of the talented English pianist Cordelia Williams. Hence the Tarantella is brilliant and virtuosic, but it gains its character and colour from its source of inspiration, the solar wind. At times the wind delights in its dance through the cosmic dust and at other times it is powerful and dynamic. Occasionally you can hear deep bass notes like drums - a reminder of the distant heartbeat of the sun where
the solar wind originates. Only at the climax of the Tarantella, near the end of the piece, does the solar wind revisit its origins before being propelled into the universe again amidst the swirling star dust.
Cordelia Williams's première of Tarantella at the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition in 2001 was quickly followed by a recording on November 23 for Naim Audio. Roy Howat gave subsequent premières at Festivals in Portugal and Japan the following year.
