The Rise and Rise of Francis Macdonald

I only have good things to say about Francis Macdonald and I'm very pleased his latest album is receiving great responses, great reviews and great sales. The List heard "Music For String Quartet, Piano and Celeste" (On TR7 Records) and said: "Minimalist compositions are a triumph. Stylistically stark with a warm and comforting core." Whilst Will Fitzpatrick of The Skinny magazine wrote... "Recorded in Mogwai’s Glasgow studio, Music For String Quartet… is a collection of minimalist compositions drawing on the likes of Philip Glass and Yann Tiersen, as well as his own soundtrack work. Perhaps predictably, it’s also quite lovely." Tracks from the album have been played on both Classic FM and by Jarvis Cocker on BBC6 music. The Scotsman described "Music For String Quartet, Piano And Celeste" as "fine and beautiful". Makes you want to buy it, right? The album is available from iTunes, Amazon,Spotify, eMusic, Napster. The Rebel Magazine's verdict: "Album of the year!"
