Classic Album Covers is a collection of
eight miniatures - each a musical response to some of the most
recognisable, most famous or personal favourite album covers from
the days of vinyl records. I chose the albums based entirely on
the cover artwork and generally not the artist or the music. I
have to admit to only owning four out of the eight albums.
However, there are a couple of albums that I have listened to
countless times. It is safe to say it is definitely a biased,
entirely un-scientific and personal list and no poll was
Each title is a 'mash-up' of the artist's name with the title of the album
Each miniature is purely a musical response to the artwork. They don't contain any references to the music on the record. The intent was to capture the spirit of the imagery.
Instrumentation: Violin, viola, cello.
Duration: 15 min.
Contents note: I. Neverna -- II. Pink Moon -- III. Born in the Spring -- IV. Strait Arms -- V. Duri Duro -- VI. Oxyjean -- VII. Beabey Road.
Dedication note: Classic Album Covers was written for my friends in the Darlington Trio: Semra, Sally and Jon.
