Harrison Birtwistle - Night’s Black Bird - Hallé - Ryan Wigglesworth

Harrison Birtwistle - Night’s Black Bird - Hallé - Ryan Wigglesworth
ID: NMCD156
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Tuba

Owen Slade, tuba
The Hallé
Ryan Wigglesworth, conductor

This collection of premiere recordings of orchestral works by Harrison Birtwistle span a period of ten years (1994-2004).
The works move away from the composer’s forceful and monolithic grandeur, of which he has become associated, and have a more reflective, otherworldly and subtle sound, exploring the world of melancholy.
The Shadow of Night is a slow nocturne, exploring the world of melancholy, inspired by the composer’s life-long fascination with Dürer’s engraving Melencolia I, and Night’s Black Bird (commissioned by the Roche Foundation) continues with the same reflective musical imagery. The Cry of Anubis, part tuba concerto, part tone poem, grew out of Birtwistle’s fascination with Anubis, the jackal-headed god of the necropolis in Egyptian mythology who played an important part in
Birtwistle’s surreal recent opera The Second Mrs Kong (1993-94).
This is The Hallé’s first recording for NMC.

Ed Bennett: My Broken Machines - Decibel

Ed Bennett: My Broken Machines - Decibel
ID: NMCD169
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Clarinet

Ed Bennett’s music, which has been described in the press as ‘anarchic’ (Irish Times), ‘manic’ (Classical Music), ‘brutal’ (Guardian) and ‘beautiful’ (Gramophone) is often characterized by its strong rhythmic energy, extreme contrasts and the combination of acoustic, electronic and multimedia elements. In common with a number of composers of his generation, Bennett developed an interest in classical music relatively late - his earlier musical experiences were in bands and improvisation groups and these interests are still evident in his music.
Highlights include Ghosts, for amplified viola d’amore, that explores the acoustic peculiarity of the baroque instrument: beneath its seven strings the instrument has seven sympathetic strings creating a ghost-like resonant sound around the bowed notes. Stop-Motion Music applies to music a ‘stop-start’ technique Bennett admires in the work of surrealist Czech animator Jan Svankmajer and a childhood memory of an old fairground filled with ‘laughing policemen, mechanical fortune tellers, tests of strength, ghost trains and an array of other eccentric machines’ is the inspiration for My Broken Machines.
