Crossing Paths

Ensemble Liaison and the Tony Gould Trio alternate from one track to the next, presenting first the original score of each piece followed by an improvised version of the music.

The pieces were chosen for their timeless beauty, and, because of their melodic and harmonic richness, lend themselves to endless possibilities for variation.

Tony Gould comments: " One of the great things about music-making, whether improvising spontaneously, or playing from the printed score, there must always be elements of surprise. It is the nature of our beloved art that, thankfully, no two performances can ever be the same."
