QUIETUDE - Alastair Penman

Released 2024 on Meadowbank Music.

“The recorded sound and all the playing on this CD is superb”

Clarinet and Saxophone Society of Great Britain

"...a broad range of talents, a meticulous attention to detail and a very personal is a project that reaches out and touches us all"

In the frantic world we live in, there are ever fewer opportunities to embrace peace and tranquillity and enjoy the natural world around us. This album invites the listener to take time for themself, to unplug from the digital world that we live in and to find solace in the beauty of music and of nature.
