Gwyn Pritchard: Features and Formations
In celebration of Gwyn Pritchard’s 75th birthday, Métier releases Features and Formations: a fascinating insight into Pritchard’s creative process. This is contemporary, seemingly mercurial work, rich in structure. Starting from pre-compositional planning and techniques, the composer subtly evolves rhythm and pitch, to create a sound world that manifests great atmosphere and emotion.
Features and Formations include five of Gwyn Pritchard’s ensemble works (a quintet, two quartets, and a trio) and three pieces for solo piano, all performed by the distinguished Swiss contemporary music group Ensemble ö! conducted by Francesc Prat, and the piano solos by their pianist Asia Ahmetjanova
