McLachlan is one of the established Camilleri specialists; performer and composer worked together on this CD of music (first recordings in each case) some of which was especially written for this disc. Camilleri’s music is very special – atmospheric, mystical but also full of life and vigour.

Camilleri of a different kind: light, fun and brilliant orchestral works on DDV 24126.
