Buxton Orr: Chamber Music for Strings

The music of Buxton Orr, born in Glasgow in 1924, was hardly over-exposed during his lifetime but has encountered even more neglect since his death in 1997. This CD takes a step in the right direction, presenting Orr's mildly modernist, elegant and honest music in first recordings of four of his chamber works for strings.

Beethoven String Trio of London, string trio
Pavlo Beznosiuk, violin
Andrew Roberts, violin
Jeremy Williams, viola
Richard Tunnicliffe, cello
Maya Homburger, baroque violin
Barry Guy, double-bass
