INWARD – Nomination and ‘We Are The Makers’ Award
INWARD was recently awarded the music prize by ‘We Are The Making’, and also recognised by the Scottish Album of the Year award. An interview with the blog regarding current projects and collaborations can be found here.
“Richard’s individual dedication to his artistic direction, persistence and openness to collaboration in the development of a truly original work, ‘Inward’.
INWARD was also the only classical nomination for Scottish Album of the Year in the 2012 competition organised by the Scottish Music Industry in partnership with Creative Scotland. Both the award and nomination are a significant recognition of my work as well as the composers and musicians who collaborated with me in the making of the disc, they include: John Croft, David Pearce, Karin Hellqvist, Pontus Langendorf and John Hails.
“Richard Craig, Inward (Metier): Mercurial flautist Richard Craig is a leading interpreter of contemporary and avant-garde music, and Inward is the fascinating product of six years’ work. It showcases Craig’s extraordinary – and exploratory – technique”
