'Absorbing and elegant music, beautifully played'
'A hypnotic and Zen-like quality which really keeps one involved'
'A beautiful piece - the sounds kiss the air'
'Gentle reflections. I love the space and deceptive simplicity'
'Gentleness is at the heart of Darvill-Evans' musical expression. Siwan Rhys seems the ideal interpreter. Sound quality is superb, capturing the resonant spaces to perfection. A lovely disc.'
'In a small, compact but sensitive way there is something almost Wordsworthian in Darvill-Evans’ recollections of time and nature and place.'
From internationally renowned classical pianist Piers Lane to Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason, this haunting music has gained accolades for its beautifully simple form and a delicacy that defies categorisation. A big thank you to Steve Plews, Phil Hardman and Tim Parry for their help in this project.
Mark Darvill-Evans draws on a wide range of musical influences and following study at Cardiff University developed a unique musical style that combines and builds on these foundations with ideas from other creative pursuits. His music has been used in advertising and won support from personalities as diverse as Piers Lane and Nick Mason of Pink Floyd. Mark grew up in a musical family where his father was a church organist and his siblings musical tastes veered toward more contemporary sounds. Mark has previously collaborated with composer Robert Szymanek and is married to former concert pianist Jane.
