Product description

Product Description

"Affric is the 5th studio album from Duncan Chisholm and the much-anticipated concluding part of his award winning Strathglass Trilogy.
To know Glen Affric in the Highlands of Scotland, is to know a place of outstanding beauty, a place bereft of people, isolated, magnificent and majestic. Affric is an album which encapsulates all of these qualities and more with Duncan developing his established style and sound from previous recordings and breathing new ideas and introspection into his music. This album moves from the dynamic and charismatic sound of ""The Flooded Meadow"" to the breathtaking beauty of ""Rubha Nam Marbh"". From Duncan's ""Waltz Of The Grey River"" which captures perfectly the movement and flow of the River Glass to his piece ""Running The Cross"" which evokes the vitality and spirit of the great ""Highland Cross"" run. This is a 21st Century fiddle album which is timeless in its delicacy and elegance as well powerful and potent in its vigour."

Review

Although Affric's 11 pieces inevitably form a kind of suite, each of them also stands alone as a satisfying miniature tone-poem in its own right. Traditional structures and forms are intelligently reworked and reorganised at the service of Duncan's acute pictorial sense, but you never feel that a predetermined "programme" is being forced on the listener, however potent the evocative power of the music in conjuring images of the unique landscape of the region - although an appreciation of this can still much enhance one's enjoyment of the music...Duncan has brought along for the ride some of the finest musicians on the scene today (Patsy Reid, Tony Byrne, Phil Cunningham, Jarlath Henderson, Iain Macfarlane, Ali Hutton and Ross Hamilton), but his own charismatic fiddling is alwsys the driving force, the unifying presence, the thread that binds it all together; not as a concerto virtuoso but more as a primary soloistic colour that informs, inspires and influences the surrounding textural landscape. And you could say that one's sense of adventure on entering the glen and travelling its glorious length is mirrored by the adventurous nature of the musical settings and arrangements, sampling along the way a myriad of contrasting chiaroscuros in sound. --David Kidman, FATEA
