Here is proof that attractive, convincing contemporary music of substance can be written for elementary level players: this collection of nine intergalactic miniatures will be suitable for players of grade 1 level, yet never succumbs to musical clichés. Régis Campo writes ostinatos, pieces in two pitch centres, uses clusters, white notes only, syncopated rhythms, contrasted colourings and - in the final piece - continuous sustaining pedal. Titles such as Galaxy of the five Suns, The expanding galaxy and Infinite Spaces stimulate the imagination, and springboard a sense of wonder and spaciousness that the notes on the page justify and confirm. A really useful and rewarding anthology that deserves Wide distribution and use.
