Time for Marimba - Daniella Ganeva

Time for Marimba - Daniella Ganeva
ID: SIGCD057
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental

Signum Classics are proud to release Daniella Ganeva's debut disc on Signum Classics - Time for Marimba.

The marimba has its origins in Africa and by way of South America, it has developed into the modern western instrument we know today. Since the second world war it has developed a certain pre-eminence amongst the percussion resources from which contemporary composers can draw. Milhaud’s 1947 Concerto for Marimba and Vibraphone, one of the first works to demand of the player the now familiar four hammer technique, is a pivotal work in this respect.

Japan has a strong drumming tradition but other indigenous percussion instruments are limited to bells, cymbals and rattles of various sorts. The 1868 establishment of constitutional monarchy under the Meiji restoration opened up the country to the outside world, including that of western art music. Yet in the very post-war period which has seen the marimba’s ascendance, Japanese composers have tended to look away from the west and towards their traditional music and its instruments for their inspiration and means of expression.

This disc explores the 20th century Japanese repertoire for marimba including music by five pre-eminent post-war composers.

Additional percussion: Gary Kettel, Graham Instrall, Graham Cole, Gillian McDonagh; Simon Haram

Sacred Bridges - Christian, Jewish and Muslim Psalms, The King's Singers with Sarband

Sacred Bridges - Christian, Jewish and Muslim Psalms, The King's Singers with Sarband
ID: SIGCD065
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Voices and Orchestra

Signum Classics are proud to release the King's Singers fifth disc on Signum; Sacred Bridges.
For thousands of years, the biblical Psalter has been the liturgical “heart” of the three main book religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The Psalms announce the word of God and, simultaneously, contain the full range of human experience.

Jews, Christians and Muslims sing and listen to the same songs of lament and joy, confessions of sin, hymns of praise and adoration. In this project of the King’s Singers and Sarband, psalm settings by composers from three religions give an example of how psalms can be a source of spirituality, a political instrument, a link between tradition and modernity and, above all, a bridge connecting human beings.

Programme Idea and development - Dr. Vladimir Ivanoff

Sarband performs this program with different choirs and vocal ensembles, until now: King's Singers, RIAS Chamber Choir, Innovantiqua Ensemble, Chorakademie Dortmund.


The group’s name Sarband stems from the Persian and Arabic languages, and means an improvised connection of two parts within a musical suite. Vladimir Ivanoff founded the ensemble in 1986 and has been pursuing an archaeology of complex connections ever since: Above all, ‘Sarband’ endeavours to explore and demonstrate connections between the music-cultures of Islam, Christianity and Judaism. Both sensitively and intensely Sarband celebrates the symbiotic relationship between Orient and Occident.

The continuous musical collaboration within the Ensemble ensures that a dialogue on equal terms is maintained. It is the exchange of practical musical experience between musicians from different cultures that make the performances of Sarband gripping, lively and utmost authentic.

Sarband’s unique repertoire has won them wide acclaim internationally. In the past two decades, the ensemble has performed at numerous international festivals and recorded 15 CDs.

Sarband’s musicians do not see their work as something sporadic but as a part of being and living. Just as religious, economic, cultural and political differences between Orient and Occident play a predominant role in today’s society, Sarband’s music endeavours to show that music has always served as communication in which people found reciprocal respect for each other and could easily contribute in the process of relating in the same way today. Uniting people around the world, offering mutual recognition towards each other, in other words: music as an example for peace.

Collection: World Music

format: Digipack with booklet 24 pages

World Music, Italy

Since early childhood Antonio Infantino and the Tarantolati of Tricarico have assimilated the musical forms of their native region, the Basilicata, as well as the capacity to distinguish the context in which these sounds, colors and dances should be practised.

With their musical instruments, the Tarantolati create an energy vortex akin to "Animistic Possession," which draws from archaic roots and irradiates outwards without losing any of its primordial strength, energy, and enthrallingly hypnotic effect.

A new milestone in electronica and trance music. The perfect union between tradition and contemporary art. The ancient sciamanic tarantella ritual reinterpreted by one of it's most known artists in a new, contemporary way. The soundtrack for the perfect spiritual rave by tarantella Guru Antonio Infantino feauturing electronica Master Eraldo Bernocchi.

Antonio Infantino

In 1991 Antonio Infantino receives the AWARD and the HONORIS CAUSA DEGREE in Science, Litterature and Art from the Belgium Real Accademy.

Antonio Infantino was born In Sabaudia (LT) in 1944. "You will never know where does he come from, you won't know where he is going. He moves like clouds". That is what is written about him in an effective decription that begins the volume "Antonio Infantino: danza cosmica, colore, suono ed architettura" published in 1996, by the European Parlament, that host his big anthologic exposition.

The "nomadism" of Infantino, that brings him from Tricarico (not far from Metaponto in Basilicata, residence of the mathematician and philosopher Pitagora) to Florence, Brazil, Belgium, Holland, etc is not only physical but is above all cultural and full of discipline. The "Tarantola dell'arte", this virus that never leaves him and that drives him toward new and original discoveries, makes him becoming an architect (Florence, 1972, Theses on "natural and artificial space, and on the "n" dimensions"), but also a musician, a poet, a painter, a theater producer, an anthropologist, leaving a piece of dream in every field that he has touched.

In 1973/74 he teached the garden's Art in the faculty of architecture of the University of Florence. In Brasil, Belgium, Italy he did some urbans projects, parks, churchs, hospitals, theaters, buldings, houses, appartements, gardens, furnitures and objects, and all those projects has been realized.

Within all "the things made", as he calls them, that made him becoming famous, it is important to remember the constitution of his musical band: "I Tarantolati di Tricatico". When he comes back from Egypt and Creta, Infantino, in 1975, makes a research on the mediterranean arts, remembering the experiences that he lived and creates a new music repertory using the Lacano dialect, with particolar linguistic sonorities, combined with minimal chords and with an important percussion base. Within Antonio Infantino successes with his Tarantolati: "La Gatta Mammona", used again, in 1997, with the band "99 posse", and Infantino's composition "AVOLA", that he played in the Dario Fo show "Ci ragiono e canto".

In 1966 Feltrinelli published some of his compositions as a poet:"I denti cariati e la patria" with a preface made by Fernanda Pivano. He doesn't get in "the italian City of Light" by mistake: Infantino has not only participated at the readings with Allen Ginsberg, but it was also one of the star in the italian beat, as it is said in an article from il Corriere Della Sera, when "il tarantolato" stayed a night in jail because he was going around milan with a crown on his head. An individual that really incarns the best things of the cultures and the spectacles of last 30 years.

Magician, mistic, philosopher and scientist, Infantino put all discipline in one dimention called: Art, that for him means "a brige between the individual mind and the spiritual mind".

Thousands of persons, in Italy and from everywhere in the world, saw his spectacles, expositions, performances, radio and tv shows. The press realized a lot of articles about his work.

In 2003 Infantino has been invited to realize a Special Event About Visual Art, Music, Theater and dance, TARA'n'TRANCE Techno Cathatic Opera, in the gardens of the Biennale di Venezia.

Fratelli Mancuso - Cantu

CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: World Music

format: Digipack with booklet 28 pages

World Music, Italy, Mediterranean, sicily

Guests:
Enzo Pietropaoli, Gabriele Mirabassi, Enrico Rava, Stefano Bollani, Michele Ascolese, Rosario Iermano, Gianmaria Testa.

Cantu is finally the NEW work of the two internationally acclaimed sicilian Brothers.

All fans who enjoyed the previous album "Bella Maria" and their acting in "The Talented Mr. Ripley" an Anthony Minghella Hollywood Movie, will be certainly pleased and surprised by the sophisticated beauty of this new album.

The Mancuso Brothers crossed over apparently incompatible worlds in the last twenty years, trough the Sutera's ( their village) lost paths of their native Sicily to the remote suburbs of London.
They learned the language of the rimembrance, like the castaway learns swimming, avoiding any distractions.

They began singing professionally without actually realizing it and they are still doing it even when, left the London mists, they came back to Italy, following an ideal, essential song, crucial like a first need.

After the success of "Bella Maria " the Mancuso Brothers have become cultural Icons of their native and beloved Sicily, performing in all major Theaters and Festivals, appearing in Radio and Television with their "virtuous unconsciousness", in Italy and abroad.

Now, revisiting their long artistic journey, they expose the main themes of their musical poetry, in these beautiful, well arranged new tracks, accompanied by exceptional fellow travellers like Enzo Pietropaoli on Doublebass, Gabriele Mirabassi on clarinet, Enrico Rava on trumpet, Stefano Bollani on piano, Michele Ascolese on guitar and buzuki, Rosario Iermano on percussions and Gianmaria Testa voice.

A true musical and cultural event for all lovers of fine Italian Music and Art.
A Must for all those interested in Sicilian and Mediterranean culture.

"When I visited Paolo Giaro at his studio I felt I had stepped into the den of a wizard. It seems he has invited an entire world of international musicians to pass through Pesaro, and has absorbed their influence and influenced them in turn.
He has created a complex and original style of music, enriched with rhythms and melodies from the streets of the world and bound together by his extraordinary twentieth-century compositional mind. This is, to me, a truly fascinating direction for music to take."
