Rolf Hind, pioneer of the avant-garde keyboard, is the dedicatee of both Hoyland's The Other Side of the Air and Sawer's The Melancholy of Departure - works which explore the sheer physicality of the piano.


"Rolf Hind's response [is] comprehensively sensual: grimly enduring vicious whiplash chords while stupendously in control of the most glassy pianissimos."
