The King’s Singers & WDR Big Band, Bill Dobbins (director)

A unique disc from two versatile and distinctive groups of performers: The King’s Singers and and the WDR Big Band perform a new jazz version of JS Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, arranged and directed by Bill Dobbins.
Recorded live in concert last year, this performance captures the timeless and versatile nature of Bach’s work, retaining the integrity of the original whilst presenting it in wholly new setting. Both groups are Grammy award winners; The King’s Singers, famed for their precision and sound, and the WDR Big Band, one of Europe’s leading jazz-ensembles.

This release is a unique and rare recording of Ralph Vaughan Williams conducting his Serenade to Music from a performance in 1951. It is a deeply expressive and romantic interpretation. The Serenade to Music was commissioned by Sir Henry Wood for his Jubilee Concert to celebrate his 50 years as a conductor. The concert took place on October 5th 1938.
The Serenade to Music is one of the sweetest, most beautiful of all Vaughan William’s works.
Also on this recording are the Pilgrim’s Journey and a bonus disc of Vaughan Williams talking about the teachings of Parry and Stanford and a short extract from the funeral service of Vaughan Williams. This recording has been brilliantly re-mastered by Peter Reynolds.

Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Violin

Shared Ground is a set of works by the British composer Alec Roth, featuring several poems and sung texts by the Indian writer Vikram Seth. The title piece of the same name is inspired by Seth’s poetry following a decision to buy and live in the Old Rectory in Bemerton - the former home of the 17thcentury poet and priest George Herbert. Other works on the disc expand this idea of a shared home or dwelling, with Earthrise - the reflections of Apollo astronauts on viewing the planet from orbit - and Hymn to Gaia.

To hear the interlocking version of Shared Ground and Ponticelli, programme the tracks in the following sequence: 1 - 7 - 2 - 8 - 3 - 9 - 4 - 0 - 5 - q - 6

Schubert: Die Winterreise -Hans Zender - Eine komponierte Interpretation

Schubert: Die Winterreise -Hans Zender - Eine komponierte Interpretation
ID: KAI0012002
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Collection: Vocal Collection
Subcollection: Voices and Chamber Ensemble

In this "composer's interpretation" Hans Zender takes on the sacred cow that is Franz Schubert's song cycle "Die Winterreise" and reconstructs it, much in the way a modern stage director might recontextualize an opera by changing its setting. The words and melodies remain and the sequence of songs is intact, but the accompaniments are rendered with a sense of fantasy, varying from a folksy guitar-and-harmonium background or the parlor intimacy of a string quartet to a completely modern percussion ensemble. At moments it sounds as if the poor love-forsaken traveler has wandered into a scene from Strauss or Berg, but what prevails above all is the haunted atmosphere of the original, the tandem vision of Schubert and the poet Muller that takes the listener from the pointed immediacy of heartbreak to the blurred numbness of insanity.

Lied der Lieder (Canto VIII), oratorio for soli, choir, orchestra and live-electronic music
Michael Alber, chorus master

“Shir hashirim ashira li shlomo”, the “Song of Songs” is heard at the beginning, sung in Hebrew, the title. At first, written in the score, a Koan, a Zen Buddhist maxim.... The composition Shir Hashirim is basically open, but it is not undefined. It is a result of Hans Zender‘s reflections over a period of many years concerning technical, compositional questions, which have led to an independent system of harmonics, here carried out for the first time. His works since then all have an unmistakable compositional stamp. (Isabel Mundry)

Collection: Vocal Collection

Luigi Nono No hay caminos, hay que caminar … Andrej Tarkowskij (1987) “Wayfarer, there is no path. Yet you must walk”, in Spanish: “Caminante, no hay caminos. Hay que caminar.” These words are the contents of an inscription, which Luigi Nono read on the wall of a monastery in Toledo in the middle of the 1980s. They must have affected him most deeply, since in the last three years of his life he made them the basis of the titles of a trio of works. In “Hay que caminar” he surely recognized his own lifelong principle of continual creative restlessness, of perpetually being en route, which guided him from the outset. For a long time this was perhaps unconscious, but during the several years’ incubation of Prometeo it took conscious shape in the presentation of a route-less wayfaring that directs everything. An observation from 1981 is characteristic of this consciousness. For him it was primarily to do with the attempt “to find something, but not something certain.” The central piece of the trilogy mentioned above is No hay caminos, hay que caminar … Andrej Tarkowskij.
Nono dedicated the piece to the Russian film director Andrej Tarkowskij, outlawed from his own country, perhaps in view of the film Nostalghia, which has as its theme the search “for something, which perhaps doesn’t exist”... (Josef Häusler)
