Peter Critchley Campbell has here created tuneful, delicate, melodious little pieces redolent with atmosphere and nostalgia to convey a mood that captures the essence of the play. The result holds the listener in a trance for its entirety. The music ranges from the depths of despair, loneliness and regret to the reflective, hopeful, and tranquil. This is music to bring happiness to the most world-weary of souls. The music is contemplative: melancholic and haunting but also light and romantic. Favorite track: Closing: Theme from Kabaret Europa.


This recording contains incidental music composed for a production of Tennessee Williams' 'The Glass Menagerie', staged in Liverpool by Kolectiv Theatre in March 2011. 'The Glass Menagerie' is a deeply funny and touching 'memory play' brimful of untenable desires and fantasies. It is Tennessee Williams' autobiographical account of love and hate in his own family. The pieces, all for piano, were performed live along with the stage action, with the aim of intensifying the mood of nostalgia evoked by Williams' master work.
