Celtic Twilight - The Music of Christopher Ball

Celtic Twilight - The Music of Christopher Ball
ID: CC5003
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Traditional

The music of Christopher Ball has been welcomed as being the continuing traditional English style of Elgar, Vaughan Williams and Finzi but with its own individual voice and orchestral sound. The Violin Concerto clearly displays these characteristics of mood and melody with its range of emotions from the poetic to the passionate. The two orchestral items: Celtic Twilight and From the Hebrides reveal a strong Celtic influence and the ability to produce a stream of memorable melody. The 5 Bagatelles for wind trio are in a contrasting style described by MusicWeb International as ‘affable and swaggeringly cheery music… witty and utterly attractive’.

Acoustic World - INDIA

Acoustic World - INDIA
ID: COR16070
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: World Music
Subcollection: Traditional

Indian Classical music is like no other: over centuries hundreds of modes and rhythms - the raga and tala - have dominated the lives of musicians dedicated to committing them to memory with a kind of spiritual devotion. It is a complex and sophisticated musical system which does not have a standardised method of notation, which has never used the equal temperament found on the western piano, and which has developed without the necessity for harmony.

This disc presents the two geographically split styles, Hindustani and Carnatic, performed by some of the most revered gurus of today:

Girija Devi celebrates her 80th birthday in 2009 and is one of India’s most celebrated singers, having dedicated her life to the discipline.
Dr. L. Subramanian is an extraordinary musician, trained in both Carnatic and Western traditions, whose virtuosic violin playing and composing brings the two cultures together.
Imrat Khan is India’s celebrated surbahar player and a leading sitar exponent who traces his family’s musical pedigree back to the 16th century court musicians of the Mughal rulers. His great-grandfather, Sahabdad Khan, is credited with creating and naming the surbahar.
Hariprasad Chaurasia is a celebrated player of the North Indian bamboo flute called the bansuri. In a country where so much importance is attached to musical lineage, Chaurasia stands as a supreme example of one who made his way alone.

Acoustic World - Persia

Acoustic World - Persia
ID: COR16065
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Traditional

This is a fascinating disc of music from the rich and ancient culture of Persia. The differing traditions of Classical and folk music are represented here, played on the ney and the sornā, as well as sung. The ney is often described as the world’s oldest instrument, whilst documents exist showing that in the 6th-4th centuries BC the sornā was accompanying dancing in the south-west Iranian region of Lorestān.

As is so often the case, Persian traditional music is the product of many related world strands. Some of the melodies and modes, for example, are related similar systems found in 7th century Turkish, Byzantine and Arabic music, owing to the cross-fertilisation caused by the Arab invasion of the Persian Empire (633-656).

Nevertheless, Persian classical music maintains its own unique characteristics. One of them is the use of rhythmic percussion to accompany instrumental melodies. The highest esteem, however, is reserved for the art of improvisation and free-time singing based on the sung recitation of poetry.

The Revolution of 1979 and the following 30 years have not provided a stable environment for music-making in Iran. Nevertheless there are musicians living and working both in Iran and abroad and, with the rise of commercially available CDs, the music of this region continues to spread and be appreciated.

Celebrated musicians Hossein ‘Omoumi, Shahmirza Moradi and Simâ Binâ who feature on this disc are among the world’s finest innovators of Persian music.

This album presents Irish music at its best, featuring some of the most respected musicians in their field playing fiddle, flute, pipes, uillean pipes, piano accordion, button accordion, melodeon, and concertina.
Irish traditional music has flourished in the last few years, and oftentimes the impetus for change has come from outside the Emerald Isle, giving us perhaps a more accurate definition to the expression ‘world music’. These influences are in some ways not surprising given that there are Irish communities in many parts of the world.
This disc captures the essence of Irish traditional music from America, Cape Breton Island, England and Ireland itself. The performances show how tradition and innovation sit comfortably together. There are two notable features: first, that none of the instruments has to be plugged in or amplified; and second, that these are live performances. Without an audience enjoying and encouraging the musicians these jigs and reels just wouldn’t take off.
The richness of the music comes from the individual musician’s treatment of it (and there are some 43 musicians featured on this disc), because although the tunes and harmonies are relatively simple, the stylistic differences between players in different geographic areas is remarkable. Enjoy the party!
