Michael Zev Gordon - On Memory - Andrew Zolinsky (piano)

Michael Zev Gordon - On Memory - Andrew Zolinsky (piano)
ID: NMCD144
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Michael Zev Gordon is Senior Lecturer in Composition at the University of Southampton and Professor of Composition at the Royal College of Music.
Gordon studied composition in the UK with Robin Holloway, Oliver Knussen and John Woolrich, in Italy with Franco Donatoni and in the Netherlands with Louis Andriessen.
Awards include a 2004 Prix Italia for A Pebble in the Pond, an extended radiophonic work on the subject of memory; and winner of the choral category of the 2008 British Composer Awards, for This Night, written for the choir of King’s College, Cambridge.
Andrew Zolinsky won the San Francisco International Piano Concerto Competition in 1998.
The works on this disc span nearly twenty years of Michael Zev Gordon’s output and demonstrate the development and change in his style from the atonal soundworld of Touch to the more recent harmonic, lyrical qualities of On Memory, a series of miniatures inspired by the way our brain conjures up hazy memories. Gordon uses a Couperin keyboard piece, a Bach Sarabande and a fragment from a Klezmer dance as starting points, which provide a brief moment of recognition before tailing off into blurry soundworlds.

MOZAIK - Niels Bijl

MOZAIK - Niels Bijl
ID: ACDBH049-2
CDs: 1
Type: SACD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Saxophone

Internationally renowned Dutch classical saxophonist performs works by Fauré, Schuber, Scriabin and Folkert Buis.

There is often a thin line between composed and improvised music, and this recording mosaics the two styles to create a cross-section that is beautifully effective in its simplicity - often dramatic and melancholy but also light-footed and assured.

Since Guido of Arrezzo laid the basis for musical notation in the 11th Century, music aficionados have challenged each other with the question: Who is the best composer of all time? Although the answer is normally someone like Bach, Mozart or Schönberg, the composer Shane Fage has offered the most original answer: The writer Charles Dickens. “Your first job is that of the story teller. Owing to the power of Dickens’ language, one could see the room, smell the stale cigar in the ashtray, feel the warmth of the fire, everything.......And that is why Dickens is the best composer I have ever heard.”


Telling stories as the basis for music. An art form from long before Guido of Arrezzo, and one that is effective in all genres. The story behind El Cant dels Ocells (Song of the Birds) is the birth of Christ, until the legendary cellist Pau Casals transformed it into the epitome of the Catalonian soul, “The birds in this piece sing “Peace, Peace, Peace!” And the music is a music that Bach and Beethoven and all the greats would have loved and admired. It is so beautiful, and it is also the soul of my country, Catalonia.” If you compare Schubert’s Adagio, Fauré’s Nocturne and the fourth Prelude of Scriabin with the ancient traditional Catalonian folksong, it is apparent that both Fage and Casals are right. For centuries the craftmanship of composers has been defined by the ability to base music on a simple but very effective melody.

A craft that is being carried on by Folkert Buis. In his “The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea” the requisite beautiful melody is constantly interrupted by cold dissonance and the violence of blows on the piano. In the middle of the piece it seems that peace and quiet have triumphed, but it quickly becomes apparent that this is no more than the eye of the storm.

That the craft is genre-free is obvious in Kirkland’s Dienda. Even in improvised music simplicity is often the trump card, but sometimes a masterwork can be brought to a higher plain by Jazz musicians. uch as Branford Marsalis’ version on his album Royal Garden Blues. His brilliant phrasing of this melody is only surpassed by the story that he brings to it with his own improvisation.

The final composition by Paquito D'Rivera, a musician who has based his carrer on a perfect mix of musical tradition and enjoyment of performance. Ultimately it is all about emotion.

Subcollection: Piano

Signum Classics are proud to release Elena Kats-Chernin debut disc on Signum Classics, Ragtime & Blue

Elena Kats-Chernin is a composer who defies categorisation and is probably best summed up as a force of nature. Her prodigious imagination has produced a vast body of work, unparalleled in range, drawing from all the musical traditions of the past and present. A virtuosic pianist and improviser, her compositions flow from her like a fountain.

This CD is drawn from the small works she often writes for her own enjoyment - a cornucopia of rags, blues and heart-melting melodies. These small vessels of fine feelings offer an intimate view into the composer’s heart.

Jazzy piano rags and melancholic musings, with duos for piano and violin of energy romance and charm, with echoes from Debussy to Shostakovich.
