ENIGMAS
ELSPETH WYLLIE (piano)
CATHERINE BACKHOUSE (mezzo-soprano)
CLAIRE OVERBURY (flute); HETTI PRICE (cello); ALEXA BEATTIE (viola)

Named for the principal work on the album, Enigmas is centred around pianist Elspeth Wyllie, in two major solo works - Nicholas Sackman's Folio I, and Elgar's Enigma Variations, in the little-known version for piano produced by Elgar himself. FIne performances of chamber works make this a fully enjoyable and informative album. The two songs by Rubbra are especially exqusite and moving.
