About Reynolds’ music:

The three works on this CD are linked in various ways, not the least of which is the common element wind. Ambages and Transfigured Wind III both feature a wind instrument, the solo flute. But Mistral, while it also employs wind instruments (brass) with strings and harpsichord, is more fundamentally “wind-built” … its construction principles originating in Reynolds’ form-musings on the famously brutal wind in the south of France. .
