Gareth Farr: Horizon — 14.08.12

Trust Records has announced the release of Gareth Farr: Horizon (MMT2070), showcasing music of Gareth Farr.

From the exotic sonorities of Indonesian gamelan to the more impressionistic influence of Olivier Messiaen, with echoes of Prokofiev and Shostakovich, this recording reveals Gareth Farr's engaging style.

New Zealand-born pianist and prize-winning Juilliard graduate Henry Wong Doe is joined by New York City colleagues in performing the ten works on this album, including seven first recordings. After Wong Doe presented the US premiere of Farr's Horizon from Owhiro Bayat Carnegie Hall, New York, he was enticed to explore more of Farr's piano music. "Gareth's music has always captivated me, and the incredible reception of this piece in New York provided the impetus to learn and record his complete piano works. As a kiwi musician I am delighted to present these brilliant works on my debut album."
