Elegant, understated music.

Both works on this recording, written in the late 1970, were the outcome of Lloyd's renewed interest in the violin. As a result of his war injuries, he had been unable to play; the muscles and nerves of his left hand had become partly uncontrollable, and remained in that way until his general health improved many years later. For more than 30 years he had almost no contact with musicians, with the exception of John Ogdon, and his need for direct contact with sound other than what was in his head led him to take his fiddle out of its case and to see what would happen. He says himself that playing once again became an obsession, and in spite of the great difficulty in trying to regain an adequate technique, love for the violin completely devoured him.
