LETTERS TO THE WORLD: Chamber Music by
George Nicholson
John Turner, Peter Lawson, Philip Edwards, Goerge Nicholson, Alison Wells, Keith Elcombe, Jonathan Price.

George Nicholson says that he is always alert to the challenge of working with the grain of every instrument he writes for, exploring and exploiting its potential to the full.  As a result his music makes virtuoso demands on the players. His style is eclectic drawing on many genres (including jazz scat-singing in "For Miles") making it full of interest.

“[Nicholson’s] music, as heard here, is always beautifully crafted, technically demanding, certainly not easy to play but eminently accessible for the composer always sees to it that it communicates directly by way of its invention, its imagination and its vitality.”– Hubert Culot (MusicWeb)
