>Scenes from a Mountain is a selection of music which Richard Ingham & Mary McCarthy enjoy playing from Scotland, Serbia, Japan, Italy, Ireland, and the United States. The album presents music for saxophone, piano, and accordion from the eighteenth century to the present day: classical music, contemporary works, traditional music and jazz. Richard and Mary have given many concerts together in the UK, USA and India.
“Richard Ingham and Mary McCarthy’s sensitivity and love of the music comes across in their playing. Throughout the CD there is great ensemble awareness as well as skillful control of their instruments. Haunting melodies are beautifully shaped and well balanced.”
