Label: ABC Classics Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

The music of British composer Howard Blake shot to international recognition with the release of the Raymond Briggs film The Snowman. Blake's beautiful theme song, 'Walking in the Air', captured the imagination of audiences around the world. This song has been performed by many artists, including Aled Jones and Hayley Westenra.

Blake, who has written more than 60 scores for film and TV, including The Avengers, A Month in the Country and My Life So Far, conceived the idea for Lifecycle, a sequence of 24 pieces for the piano, after a conversation with world-renowned pianist Vladimir Ashkenazy, to whom the cycle is dedicated.

This suite of 24 attractive and entertaining pieces, including 'Walking in the Air', is magnificently performed by pianist William Chen, who makes his debut on ABC Classics with this recording.

Artist: William Chen (piano).
