The latest release on mn records is 8 Lust Songs - I sonetti lussuriosi’ released 2nd June 2008. It is a song cycle, commissioned by the 2007 Venice Biennale. It was first performed by Marie Angel with the Orchestra di Santa Cecilia, conducted by the composer, in the Arsenale, Venice, on 4 October 2007.

Nyman’s music is set to the erotic poems of the 16th century poet Pietro Aretino.

The poems were inspired by Marcantonio Raimondi’s engravings of couples in various positions of sexual intercourse. The poems and engravings have been called a Renaissance equivalent of the Kama Sutra. They caused huge outrage at the time of publication, banned by the Papal authorities and nearly all copies destroyed. They are the most important erotic texts of the period and have gone on to inspire writers and artists alike for centuries.

Marie Angel sings the male and female roles. As Nyman composed the music the words came to life for Marie and the characters revealed themselves to her. Her interpretation is thus not only key but unique, colourful and very entertaining.

Michael Nyman - Six Celan Songs - The Ballad of Kastriot Rexhepi

Michael Nyman - Six Celan Songs - The Ballad of Kastriot Rexhepi
ID: MNRCD108
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Songs

The MN Records catalogue is significantly enriched with a second set of CDs to add to the 6 released in 2005. Two major albums are released on 24 July featuring Nyman's non-operatic vocal music:

Six Celan Songs/The Ballad of Kastriot Rexhepi and Acts of Beauty/Exit no Exit are new recordings that present compelling examples of Nyman's vibrant approach to word-setting, song structure and subject matter.

Six Celan Songs/The Ballad of Kastriot Rexhepi couples two of Michael Nyman's major vocal pieces of 1991 and 2001 and two favoured singers of the composer, Hilary Summers and Sarah Leonard.

Six Celan Songs is Michael Nyman's most profound song cycle, composed in 1990 for Ute Lemper.
Nyman selected six of Paul Celan's less hermetic texts, accidentally, perhaps, all featuring flower symbolism in a kind of 'negative theology', representing Celan's attempt as a poet to come to terms with the impossibility, according to Adorno, of writing poetry 'after Auschwitz'.
The songs, individually and collectively, express both the horror, the emptiness of the writer in exile and are cast in a musical language which attempts to 'reinvent' an imaginary emotional world related to the Romanian background in 1920s Bukovina, where Celan was born.

The Ballad of Kastriot Rexhepi, unlike the Six Celan Songs, deals directly with a war situation - an 18-month- old Kosovan boy left for dead during the Kosovo war, found and re-named by the Serbs and 6 months later reunited with his parents. It is the most recent in Nyman's series of collaborations with visual artists, in this case the American feminist/conceptualist Mary Kelly. Kelly provided the composer with a complex text in a simple ballad form which Nyman brilliantly subverts in his continuous 18-minute piece, written for Sarah Leonard and the Nyman Quartet and first performed surrounded by Kelly's visual representation of the text in the Santa Monica Museum of Art in 2001.

Judy Garland - The London Studio Recordings 1957-1964

Judy Garland - The London Studio Recordings 1957-1964
ID: FHR12
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Subcollection: Voices and Orchestra

From 1955 through 1964, Judy Garland was one of the most celebrated, acclaimed, and best-selling album artists on the EMI/Capitol roster. On several occasions during those years, she had the opportunity of recording at Abbey Road Studios. This 2CD set assembles her work done there between October 1957 and August 1964. Not only are 12 previously unreleased alternate takes included but, more significantly, a completely unknown/undocumented recording of a song called Please Say 'Ah'! The Mort Lindsey orchestration of this song is complicated and marvellous, the band on top form; Garland and her vocal partner, Saul Chaplin, are having a wonderful time and this great piece of fun, liberally sprinkled with Garland's infectious laugh, demands to be heard! This historic issue is the very first composite compact disc celebration of its kind and a guaranteed collector's item for anyone who appreciates the Great Popular Songbook - and "the World's greatest entertainer."

He is one of the major figures behind the art of French song in the 20thcentury.He recently passed away on 17 August 2004,and Claves is honored to pay homage to him by releasing two of his LP recordings from the end of the 1950’s on a CD:ancient Italian and Spanish songs as well as eight Lieder by Franz Liszt,accompanied on the piano by his partner of long standing Dalton Baldwin.Itis a moving testimony that pays homage to an artist who occasionally was the object of unmerited reproach by critics.
