Rupert Boyd, Fantasias
All this you hear to fine advantage on his album Fantasias (Little Mystery 103). On it is a cornucopia of works from virtually all ages and places--a Piazzolla tango, an arrangement of four old Celtic songs by D. Russell, a couple of short works by DeFalla, a Villa-Lobos etude, John Dowland and on from there.
The exceptional clarity and expressiveness that is the Boyd way is rare and a great thing to hear. Check out this terrific album!
