Loft Series 1: ZOOM focuses in on rhythm, perspective and richness. Jazz improvisations are the seed of John Musto’s trio that flips between vigorous bopping rhythms and urban evening blues. Chris Watson’s Schemata - subtitled Three views of an imaginary object, offers succinct and fleeting musings of perspective, followed by twelve equally taut and humorous Epigrams from the visionary Elliott Carter. Alexander Zemlinsky’s Piano Trio in d minor, Opus 3 is awash with intense tonal contrast and romantic colour.
