Sue McKenzie saxophone
Ingrid Sawers piano

A Robert Mapplethorpe photograph and the playing style of Busoni's favourite clarinettist - just two of the inspirations behind these six recent British works for saxophone and piano, which are linked by the composers' relationship to popular music, whether oblique, overt, or antagonistic.

From the pounding muscularity of Graham Fitkin to the blues-drenched melancholy of Mark-Anthony Turnage, Edinburgh duo Sue McKenzie and Ingrid Sawers bring stylistic authority and idiomatic flair to everything they play on this, their debut recording.

Sue McKenzie is a past winner of the British Clarinet and Saxophone Society Young Performers Competition. As one of Scotland's leading contemporary saxophonists she has given UK and Scottish premieres of many new works for saxophone, including those from Gavin Bryars, Graham Fitkin and Amy Quate. Susan is also the leader of the Scottish Saxophone Ensemble and was an Assistant Director of the World Saxophone Congress in 2012.

Ingrid Sawers is in demand as one of Scotland's finest accompanists and chamber musicians, performing in venues including the Usher Hall, Glamis Castle and Scone Palace, as well as widely throughout the UK and abroad.

B.Britten - Suites for Solo Cello - Philip Higham, cello

B.Britten - Suites for Solo Cello - Philip Higham, cello
ID: DCD34125
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Cello

Britten’s meeting with Rostropovich in 1960 was a watershed, the great Russian cellist becoming the primary collaborator of his later years, and inspiring a whole series of masterworks. Among them are the three suites for solo cello, written as a conscious homage to those of Bach (there were originally to have been six). Intriguingly, the Britten scholar Paul Kildea sees the first as a coda to the War Requiem, the second as a snapshot of a lifetime of musical obsessions, and the third as reaching back to much earlier works and suffused with primordial Russian melody. The young virtuoso Philip Higham, one of the only British cellists in generations to have won top prizes at three major international competitions, brings a youthful vigour and deep intelligence to these seminal masterpieces, resulting in performances of commanding authority and intensity.

Beethoven:
Piano Sonata No. 21 in C major, Op. 53 'Waldstein'
Piano Sonata No. 17 in D minor, Op. 31 No. 2 'Tempest'
Piano Sonata No. 31 in A flat major, Op. 110

David Wilde (piano)

AboutReviews.These three piano sonatas outline a progression from the despair of the Piano Sonata No. 17 in D minor, Op. 31, No. 2, written at the same time as the start of the famous ‘Heiligenstadt Testament’, when Ludwig van Beethoven’s realisation that his deafness was complete and permanent drove him to contemplate suicide, via his courageous fight back, brilliantly expressed in the irrepressible optimism of the Piano Sonata No. 21 in C, ‘Waldstein’, Op. 53 towards the lofty spiritual aspirations of the Piano Sonata No. 31 in A flat, Op. 110.

50 years after his victory in the International Liszt-Bartók Piano Competition David Wilde’s masterful interpretations are the fruit of a lifetime’s experience of studying and performing these towering masterpieces.

Semion Shmelkov, bayan (accordion) - L'AMOUR

Semion Shmelkov, bayan (accordion) - L'AMOUR
ID: ART248
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Accordion

Cycle of chromatic preludes «Thinking of Bach» for an organ is very successfully transformed for a bayan by a brilliant performer S. Shmelkov. There is a sense of Bach in each piece of this composition Communication slight tonalities in the letters of his surname (BACH), accepted in letter designations of notes (Si a flat, La, Do and Si). The same notes appear in each part of a cycle and, of course, the composition plan is reflected in its stylistics (R. Ledenyov).

Three piece in „mauvais” Style for a bayan with microphone one of S. Berinsky's most extravagant compositions for a bayan. Titles of parts are unusual and absurd: the first part - „L’AMOUR”, the second part - „Khoo?!” (But not in the meaning - „kho“), the third part - „Partando Vulp…” (Nobody knows what it means). «Three pieces - is a gloomy, depressive composition. When it has been written, I suddenly felt down and depressed». (S. Berinsky).

Four stories for the four flutes with a bayan is the first composition in literature of a bayan for such an ensemble. All the composition is impregnated by Russian national intonations, and in the third part the beginning of Russian national song «the Guelder-rose with a raspberry early has blossomed» and intonations of the Byzantian music are clearly heard. «In each story it would be desirable to show not only the character, an image, but to tell a story with the help musical resources» (O. Chistokhina).

Shmelkov Semion was born in Kemerovo. He came from the family of professional musicians. He began learning to play the bayan when he was 6. His teacher was V. V. Shmelkov. Semion finished the speacial music school of the Glinks Novosibirsk State Conservatory under the professor A. V. Krupin.

Now he is a student of the Gnessins Russian Musical Academy under the professor F. R. Lips. Semion Shmelkov isa ia laureate of the international competitions and he has Grand Prix VI of the international competition of the national music instruments "Cup of the North".

Semion performs in different cities of Russia. He was a grant-aided student of "The Junior talents of Kuzbass", the Fund "The Junior talents of Siberia", the ministry of the Russian Federation, the charity International Fund by Vladimir Spivakov. There are numbers articles in different magazines and newspapers about him.
