Dissimilar Views 2 (Double CD) Remastered 2019 with original Korce Project Booklet.
‘Dissimilar Views’ was released in 1995 and represented a change of direction for David Wright, a transition into different directions, although retaining key elements from his early period romanticism.
All of the music was originally written and recorded in 1993/1994, but it wasn’t until 2002 that the double ‘Dissimilar Views 2’, was eventually released. Officially, it was as a download release, but then on limited edition CDr, presenting the original Dissimilar Views with additional music not released at the time of the 1995 CD, for a variety of reasons.
In 2019 David remastered Dissimilar Views 2 for CD release and the first 100 CDs also come with the original Korce Project booklet of poems written by Keith Bromley that inspired much of the music of Dissimilar Views. Although the double album does include all the music from the original Dissimilar Views, its worth noting that several of the tracks are longer on Dissimilar Views 2 (than on Dissimilar Views 1) and that additional music from the Korce Project is included and the tracks are interlinked. The double album was also remastered using a different process than used on the Dissimilar Views remaster, thus giving the whole album a slightly ‘different’ overall feel.
Sequences play an important role on tracks such as the longer version of ‘Albania Part1’ and ‘Turning Tides’ and the 2 versions of the excellent ‘Rysheara’ which remains a David Wright classic. ‘Korce’ with its restless, strident theme and rock percussion is a fine addition to the repertoire and ‘Room of Dolphins’ offers a perfectly chilled oasis of tranquility with some fine arpeggios and piano work. ‘Benny’s Theme’ tugs at the heart strings with subtle instrumental work and delicate textures, whilst ‘Embarou Bay’ offers a more optimistic travelogue. The set concludes with ‘Returning Tides’ clocking in at just under the 10 minute mark it typifies the high quality of the unreleased material throughout.
This commendable release shows how prolific David Wright’s output was at this time. Rest assured if you are unfamiliar with the Korce material and a fan of David Wright in general and ‘Dissimilar Views’ in particular this is a fine collection and fills a gap in the composer’s musical curriculum vitae.
