- Cheryl Frances-Hoad has been composing to commission since she was fifteen

- A compilation of chamber orchestral, chamber and solo piano works inspired by composers from the past.
Admired for her originality and fluency, Cheryl Frances-Hoad has been composing to commission since she was fifteen. Classical tradition (she trained as a cellist and pianist at the Yehudi Menuhin School before going up to Cambridge, gaining a Double First, and then King's College, London), along with contemporary influences including literature, painting and dance, have contributed to a creative presence provocatively her own. 'Intricate in argument, sometimes impassioned, sometimes mercurial, always compelling in its authority' (Robin Holloway, The Spectator), weaving 'an astonishing tapestry of vocal and emotional colours' drenched 'in dramatic expression of the most ravishing intensity' (Matthew Wright, The Arts Desk), her output - widely premiered, broadcast and commercially recorded, reaching audiences from the Proms to school workshops - addresses all genres from opera, ballet and concerto to song, chamber and solo music.
