The joined forces of music and literature can lift up both arts beyond themselves. It is this promise that impelled many composers throughout the centuries to transcend their talents in the own musical discipline to create a higher reality - whether in the intimate atmosphere of the Lied or in the exhilarating publicity of the opera. A late seventeenth-century testimony of this is the semi-opera King Arthur (1691) by Henry Purcell: In What Power art thou, who from below… chills run down the spine when the allegorical figure Cold Genius shakes off the snow from his cloak at the request of Cupid, who wants to incite a new spring with his love.

The Queen's Six - Daniel Brittain & Timothy Carleston (countertenors), Nicholas Madden & Dominic Bland (tenors), Andrew Thompson & Simon Whiteley (basses)
The Queen’s Six releases their debut album with a sumptuous selection of music from the golden age of English polyphony.

Recorded in the extraordinary surroundings of St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle - where each member of The Queen’s Six is a Lay Clerk - Music of the Realm features six composers associated with the royal court of Queen Elizabeth I, from whom the group gets its name.

For their first Resonus album the group have selected a programme of both well and lesser-known works by six composers who wrote music for and during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I - William Byrd, Thomas Tallis, Thomas Tomkins, Thomas Weelkes, Thomas Morley and Orlando Gibbons. The recording is accompanied by an essay from early music scholar and conductor, Peter Phillips.

'They bring seamless blend and balance to music from the reign of Elizabeth I, from whom they take their name.'

Ashley Riches (baritone) & Emma Abbate (piano)
Former Royal Opera House Jette Parker Young Artist baritone Ashley Riches, and rising star pianist Emma Abbate, perform a ravishing selection of previously unrecorded Shakespeare Sonnets by Italian composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco.

Composed after his migration to the USA in 1939, these songs contain all the wistful atmsophere of, and his obvious warmth for, his native Florence as well as his life-long obsession with William Shakespeare. Making his solo album debut with this album, Ashley Riches, along with the superbly eloquent pianist Emma Abbate, wonderfully capture the mood of each of Shakespeare's masterpieces in miniature.

Anneke Scott (natural horn), Lucy Crowe (soprano) & Steven Devine (piano)
The third installment in Anneke Scott’s series of works by the French natural horn player and composer Jacques-François Gallay presents a thrilling programme of operatic fantasias & songs.

These fascinating and unique works mix incredibly virtuosic music with beautifully lyrical melodies deeply influenced by Gallay’s position as solo horn of the Parisian Théâtre Italien. For this final volume in the series, Scott is joined by the celebrated pianist Steven Devine and renowned soprano Lucy Crowe.

In this recording, Anneke Scott performs on a natural horn (cor solo) by Marcel-Auguste Raoux dating from 1823 (Loaned with kind permission by the Bate Collection, University of Oxford), while plays a grand piano by Érard, from 1851. (Loaned with kind permission by the University of Birmingham).

Marcus Farnsworth (baritone), James Baillieu (piano), Thomas Kemp (conductor)
Following on from the critical success of his recording of Gerald Finzi's By Footpath and Stile (Resonus RES10109), rising star baritone Marcus Farnsworth here makes his solo album debut for Resonus.

Presenting an instantly striking and diverse collection of world premiere recordings of song by the contemporary composer Martin Bussey, Farnsworth is joined by the renowned young pianist James Baillieu for the A.E. Housman cycle Blue Remembered Hills (with texts from A Shropshire Lad), the Two Hardy Songs, and the evocative and characterful Garden Songs. Also included are the substantial song cycle for voice and small ensemble Through a Glass, Darkly - directed by the acclaimed conductor Thomas Kemp - and the beautiful stand-alone song for baritone and violin, The Windhover.

'Educationist and musician Martin Bussey (b1958) is a chameleon composer, able effortlessly to adapt his style to the contours of his chosen poetry: warmly lyrical for Housman’s Blue Remembered Hills; interestingly angular for Yeats’s The Mask; silky soft for Auden’s Lay Your Sleeping Head [...] beautifully sung by this most mellifluous of baritones'

Type: CD
Collection: Vocal Collection

After his hospitalization for a psychological break in the 1950's, Giacinto Scelsi began composing music that was radically different from his earlier, more conventional serial works. Based on explorations of tiny details of timbral variation, his new music defied categorization. His first new works are compelling examinations of repeated notes and their microtonal neighbors. His later pieces are lush sculptures of sound, placed carefully in a silent landscape. 'Okanagon,' is a microscopic observation of repeated low notes, juxtaposed at various angles. In some "views" the ensemble plays percussively on the sides of their instruments, giving the impression of a note magnified so largely that one can hear the individual pulses.
Though it may be difficult to relate Scelsi to other music, it is not without contemporary relevance. Ligeti's string quartets and Penderecki's "Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima" also employ drone and microtonality. Theirs are harsh cries to Scelsi's fascinated murmur, however.
This great collection, all from various stages of Scelsi's second period, shows the development of his style. Unconventional music always risks horrifying misinterpretation but Hans Zender and the Vienna Klangforum honor Scelsi's music with a reverence for timbre and space. The performances are excellent, and beautifully recorded.

(text by Salvatore Sciarrino after Maria Maddalena de' Pazzi)

Attracted by the borderline experiences and solitary forms of a gradually darkening Renaissance, these compositions by Salvatore Sciarrino revolve around three figures from the 16th century, all of whom lost control in the field of tension between feverish living and spiritual demise, between brightness and damnation, inspired, driven and obsessed. The famous poet Torquato Tasso describes in three authentic letters (Lettere poetici) his tormenting visions of goblins and phantoms. This is all reflected in Sciarrino's intense, whispering, whirring music, in which silence is as significant as the birth of sound, "Almost naked, sober," remarks the composer, "and that is an important element when one is listening to music. Only in this way can it bore its way into the flesh."
