PAUL SKEATES ON CATRIN FINCH
on 28 November 2005
The rising fame of this outstanding talent is not a moment too soon, and Crossing The Stone provides the perfect introduction to her music,offering as it does a good mixture of the old and the new. From the opening Mountain Dance to the closing Palladio, this CD illustrates the superb arrangement skills of Karl Jenkins and the technical brillance of Catrin.
The star piece has to be the title track, Crossing The Stone, with its emotionally charged performance from Catrin and her teacher, Elinor Bennet. This is simply one of the most beautiful pieces of music you will ever here, and sends a tingle down my spin every time I hear it.
Track 13 will be the purest version of Ave Maria you will hear, and the closing track has a pace and rhythm that's uplifting and lively
If you love the harp you will love this album, and if you love this album, do try the rest of the rest of Catrin Finch's music, or better still see her in concert live: you will not be disappointed.
