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'

Scottish music composer Geraldine Mucha (1917-2012) is the daughter-in-law of a prominent Czech artist Alfons Mucha, one of the greatest figures in the European Art Nouveau movement. Her life was spent as the wife of writer Jiri Mucha in Prague, where she met a number of prominent Czech and world artists. Unfortunately, her work is not very well known throughout the world. This production brings completely new and unique recordings of both her orchestral and chamber compositions. Some of her finest work is included on this album, such as the Macbeth Suite, Songs of John Webster, and her Piano Concerto, performed by the eminent Hradec Kralove Philharmonic Orchestra.

Giacinto Scelsi - Yamaon, Anahit, I presagi / Klangforum Wien - Hans Zender

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."

1 - Junge Deutsche Philharmonie - Lothar Zagrosek, conductor
2 - Claudia Barainsky, soprano / Gabriel Suovanen, baritone / Banchetto musicale, viola da gamba / Orchestre de la Suisse Romande - Marek Janowski, conductor
3 - Joan-Enric Lluna, clarinet / Orquesta Nacional de España - Miguel Harth-Bedoya, conductor
4 - hr-Sinfonieorchester - Pascal Rophé, conductor
5 - 7 hr-Sinfonieorchester - Peter Rundel, conductor

The five orchestral works on this CD communicate phenomenal colors and the intense sensuousness of mysterious formal progressions. Silence, shadows, absence: it is above all the darker neighborhoods of the human soul that captivate Sánchez-Verdú’s interest. Exploring marginal realms which, in their beauty and refinement of tone, contain both the brilliant light of Spain’s south and utter darkness: this is the art of composer José M. Sánchez-Verdú.

Light and air in a state of constant, subtly detailed movement: this is also the nature of Sciarrino‘s music, as if it had soaked up all those delicate colours and adopted the mobility of air, captured its nocturnal buzzing-sounds with a net veil and transformed them into fluctuating sonorities, roaring and murmuring. One could almost think that the flickering odours of Mediterranean landscapes had entered the fleeting images of such music. Vague suggestions emerging from an old cultural realm, transposed into the present, lingering briefly and then disappearing once more. An interplay of sound and silence, free-floating fragments no longer within the domain of the unambiguous: one listens to them spellbound. (Lothar Knessl)
