In the technical language of music, increasing the tempo is referred to as “accelerando.” If this kind of regular rhythmic acceleration is provided with the appropriate sounds along with the actual musical tones, then a perceptible imagine arises of a steam engine starting up, or a train going faster and faster. Beginning around the mid-nineteenth century, everything suddenly seemed to be running on steam, machines as well as human beings. Both work and play sped up. All of the works on this release- which is a re-release of a SWRmusic bestseller- are focused around the theme of “Railway.” The works chosen represent a variety of composers, styles, and countries of origin, meeting under a singular compositional idea- the train.
