Tapestry

Paul Mitchell-Davidson's epic suite for mandolin and harp is now on soundcloud.

It's a real journey of a piece and I remember after one live performance a member of the audience came up to me and said, "I've never been to a classical music concert before... that last piece was like surfing a wave!"

Dance of Limewood, Smile of Ash is very still and etheral with astonishing harmonies.

A Joy of Wild Asses is my personal favourite, quirky and pretty manic.

Harvest of the Quiet Eye is a beautiful "folky" and evocative piece.

A Full Moon Rising Red is a real whirlygig epic, full of spirit & feverish dances and is the piece which inspired the "surfing" quote above.
