Catalogue Number: 11S064
Label: Divine Art
Format: CD reissue
Description: No Maltese folk-inspired works here! Apart from Camilleri’s jolly addition to the Paganini Caprice catalogue with the duet Paganiana the works here are informed by Camilleri’s views on the cosmos and its spiritual or philosophical meanings – its structural identity with music, with the equations of ancient Greece and modern physics. The extended multimovement pieces here use tone rows, minimalism, palindromes, pentatonic scales and so on, giving considerable variety in sound and structure. Murray McLachlan (piano).
