Catalogue Number: 08R069
Format: CD reissue
Description: McCabe's music is highly chromatic and makes much use of lively and constantly changing rhythms, and it has a definite if indefinable "British" feel to it. Variation-form has always been important to McCabe, and the disc contains two sets of variations, including possibly his most important piano work, the Haydn Variations. John McCabe (piano). Original 1999 British Music Society release (04A074).
