Dance of the Three Legged Elephants - Matthew Barley - Julian Joseph
ID: SIGCD171
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Piano and Cello

Dazzling yet intimte, this set of tracks is the work of two brilliant and internationally renowned musicians who are also close friends, and their friendship pours from the music with passion, intensity, humour and inspiring energy. The central focus here is ‘collaboration’ - the musical collaboration of Barley and Joseph and the traditions from which they have individually evolved, and their combined collaboration with other composers in a series of imaginative arrangements.

The Soul Rests Eternal - Mike Sheppard - Caroline Dale - English Chamber Orchestra - Steve Sidwell

The Soul Rests Eternal - Mike Sheppard - Caroline Dale - English Chamber Orchestra - Steve Sidwell
ID: SIGCD232

Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Cello

A close brush with his own mortality eighteen months ago was the driving force behind Mike Sheppard's decision to focus solely on his composing, putting aside his other commercial interests as a music publisher and producer. The Soul Rests Eternal marks the first fruits of this new direction.
The works take the listener on a journey exploring the emotional landscape of grief, bereavement and loss, but also hope, optimism and a celebration of life. Seen through the twin perspectives of the composer's eyes and a more global view, the album takes an emotional journey from the immediate to the eternal; the banal to the sublime. A 'radio-friendly' collection of three to six minute works, Classic FM have confirmed playlisting for the album upon its release in November.
Performances on the disc come from internationally renowned cellist Caroline Dale and the English Chamber Orchestra, conducted by the emmy-award nominated musican Steve Sidwell.

The Soul Rests Eternal is a unique new album of powerful, emotive music that has multi-faceted depths and an interesting human-interest story at every turn. 14 new works for solo cello and orchestra take the listener on a journey exploring the emotional landscape of grief, bereavement and loss, but also hope, faith, optimism and a celebration of life.
Caroline Dale (cello soloist on Dario Marianelli’s oscar-winning score to the film ‘Atonement’) was an instinctive choice as soloist, capturing the intensely soulful voice of the cello and exploiting fully the vast range of emotions encountered here. As Principal cellist of the English Chamber Orchestra, this CD presented another opportunity for the ECO to record again on Signum Classics, following their recent recording with harpist Claire Jones.
Conceived as an arts initiative, this album breaks new ground in that it offers an inspired way for the arts, charity and business sectors to work together, in this case serving to promote the Child Bereavement Charity, with which the composer had previously been involved.
This arts/charity/business initiative sees 20% of the music publishing rights assigned to CBC. This means the charity will not only benefit from record sales, but also from live performances, radio & TV broadcasts and sheet music sales as well as whenever the music gets used in film or TV. And because the charity will own its share for life of copyright, CBC will go on benefitting for 70 years after the composer's death. The charity will also enjoy a raised profile through the publicity generated by the album.

Towards Silence - Sir John Tavener - Medici Quartet - Finzi Quartet - Cavaleri Quartet - Fifth Quadrant

Towards Silence - Sir John Tavener - Medici Quartet - Finzi Quartet - Cavaleri Quartet - Fifth Quadrant

World Premiere Recording

This premiere recording of John Tavener's Towards Silence, written for four string quartets and a large Tibetan bowl, explores the nature of consciousness and the process of dying. Tavener had long wanted to write the work and persuaded Professor Paul Robertson (leader of the Medici Quartet and Co-Founder of the Music Mind Spirit Trust) to perform it. However, shortly after the manuscript was completed both men became critically ill and close to death themselves.

By August 2008 Robertson had recovered sufficiently to resuscitate the project, which had now taken on a profound significance for himself and for Tavener. The members of the Medici Quartet immediately agreed to reform and identified young professional string quartets with whom to perform and to act as musical mentors.

Tavener's vision was for all four quartets to be positioned high up in the cathedral dome, invisible to the audience, and arranged in the shape of a cross, bringing the Christian, Bhuddist and Hindu religions together. This sense of space has been captured in the recording, which is an SACD hybrid that can also be enjoyed on a surround sound setup.

THE EIGHT SEASONS - SCOTTISH ENSEMBLE - Jonatan Morton, violin

THE EIGHT SEASONS - SCOTTISH ENSEMBLE - Jonatan Morton, violin
ID: SIGCD231
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Violin

A unique disc from one of Scotland's most dynamic and versatile groups - the Scottish Ensemble is a tight-knit band of outstanding string players from around Europe who perform regularly together under Artistic Director, Jonathan Morton. This disc - one of their first solo releases following acclaimed discs with artists such as Alison Balsom and Toby Spence - contrasts Vivaldi's timeless Four Seasons with Piazzolla's tango-inspired The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.

Combining Vivaldi and Piazzola together like this underlines the meteorological and cultural differences between Mediterranean Europe and the heart of South America. To have them performed side by side creates a fascinating programme of similarities and contrasts.

Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

Signum Classics are proud to announce The Brunel Ensemble's first disc on Signum Classics - Red Leaves.

No ensemble other ensemble is as committed to the performance of such works from all decades of the twentieth century. Formed in 1992, the group gives thrilling performances under Christopher Austin’s inspired direction.

John McCabe’s Red Leaves was commissioned by the European Community Chamber Orchestra and the 1991 Istanbul Festival. Composer Malcom Williamson studied with Elisabeth Lutyens (as did Robert Saxton) and he was Master of the Queen’s Music until his death in 2003. One of Lutyens’ first major success was a setting of Rimbaud, O Saisons, O Chateau encored at the first performance in 1947 - but noteable for having previously been turned down by the BBC as unsingable!

The McCabe and Williamson pieces are linked by the common theme of nature, the latter being inspired by Australian landscape and history. It was commissioned for the 150th Anniversary of the State of Victoria. For his anniversary greeting of 1986 on the occasion of his colleague’s half century, Robert Saxton presented his Birthday Piece for Richard Rodney Bennett. In which he chose in time-honoured manner to extract from Bennett’s name the musical notes available as a thematic cipher, and to fashion them after his own manner into a bracing invention for strings. Red Leaves is a disc of modern works by British composers.

FiddleSticks - Madeleine Mitchell, Ensemble Bash

FiddleSticks - Madeleine Mitchell, Ensemble Bash
ID: SIGCD111
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Violin

On first hearing Lou Harrison’s violin concerto, Madeleine Mitchell was entranced by the colourful array of percussion and its juxaposition with the violin’s innate lyricism. Indeed, this description could fit almost all the works featured on this lively, multi-rhythmic disc. Both string and percussion blend in a unique mix of styles from early Andalucian music to a Stravinsky inspired piece, Fragments from a Gradual Process. Complex rhythms from the Ensemble Bash who use rhythms of West African drumming as the core of their playing, combined with Madeleine’s interweaving lines often catch the listener in a moment of surprise.
