Saturn - Edwin Roxburgh

Saturn - Edwin Roxburgh
ID: NMCD119
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Clarinet

Roxburgh's Clarinet Concerto features soloist Linda Merrick in a work of symphonic scope and expressivity; she is acompanied by the Royal Northern College of Music Symphony Orchestra conducted by the composer.

In Saturn - a tribute to Holst, Roxburgh's predecessor at the Royal College of Music - Roxburgh explores the mythical characters of its moons and satellites in a series of orchestral showpieces which culminates in the wild abandon, and percussive onslaught, of Saturn itself; Hertfordshire County Youth Orchestra is conducted by Peter Stark.

Simon Holt - A Book of Colours

Simon Holt - A Book of Colours
ID: NMCD128
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Over the last three years Holt has revised all of his older piano works, written several new works, and collected a number of them together. He now plans to take a break from piano music for the next few years, while he concentrates on orchestral and music theatre works.
All the works on this disc are premiere recordings.
Rolf Hind’s recording of Holt’s only piano concerto - eco-pavan for piano and ensemble - is on NMCD094 Although Simon Holt is perhaps best known for his ensemble music-notably the NMC CDs by the Nash Ensemble and BCMG-he often refers to himself primarily as a piano composer.
An accomplished keyboard player himself, Holt considers the fourteen piano works written between 1980 and 2005 to be the very core of his output, and perhaps the works closest to his heart.
This CD of his piano music is an important document of his work.

Marino De Rosas - Meridies

Marino De Rosas  - Meridies
ID: ARNR0199
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: World Music

World Music, Sardinia, Guitar

Marino De Rosas is a great Sardinian guitarist who, over many years of studying, developed an entirely unique technique for performing and composing original scores for acoustic guitar.

An interesting color in Meridies is the use of other traditional Sardinian instruments which, today, are seen more often on display in museums than on stage.
The result of this endeavor is a unique blend of sonorities, brought forth also through the use of reed instruments, reminiscent of the artisan's country workshop, town festivals on horseback and the sounds and flavors of the jewel of the Mediterranean, Sardinia.

R. Schumann -Piano Works - Liebrecht Vanbeckevoort, piano

R. Schumann -Piano Works - Liebrecht Vanbeckevoort, piano
ID: ACDHJ042-2
CDs: 1
Type: SACD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Released to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the birth of Schumann, this well balanced recording features the talents of piano prize winning pianist, Liebrecht Vanbeckevoort. Liebrecht obtained his masters degree for piano with great distinction from the Royal Conservatory in Brussels and has a very active touring schedule.

The course of life of quite a few composers of the 19th century has a continuous appeal to people’s imagination. That also counts for Robert Schumann (Zwickau, 1810 - Endenich, 1856).

Being the son of a bookseller, he has literary ambitions, but Schumann says about this: « how strange it is that I, there where my feelings prevail, I have to stop being a poet ». He interrupts his law studies (in Leipzig and Heidelberg) - a wish of his mother’s inspired by material concern - to start a career as a pianist. He takes lessons with Friedrich Wieck in Leipzig, one of the best but also most notorious piano teachers of that time. Before there can be talk of a pianist career, his right hand becomes partly paralysed (while studying he would have fixated his third finger to make the fourth more independent and powerful). In the meantime he has fallen madly in love with Clara Wieck, a celebrated piano player and the daughter of his teacher. Father Wieck implacably exercises his veto against their relationship, causing years of psychological warfare between them. In the end, only a legal procedure makes it possible for them to marry.
Schumann completely fails as a conductor. He constantly knows periods of restlessness, despair, dejection and heavy depressions. A suicide attempt - during the depths of winter, he jumps into the Rhine river in Düsseldorf - results in Schumann ending up in a psychiatric institution, where he dies two and a half years later.

«...I worked on those 30 small, funny pieces, from which I have chosen twelve which I have called Kinderszenen. You’ll love playing them, but not as a virtuoso...», Schumann wrote to his beloved in 1838. Eventually it were thirteen of them. Thirteen short pieces which he afterwards all gave a title. They are thirteen jewels, and every one of them belongs to the absolute top of what has ever been written in the instrumental, monothematic miniature genre. They are disarming and intensely poetic, free of all external bravura, but as far as the composition technique is concerned, they are constructed in a particularly ingenious way. « A drop of music from the deepest source », Hans Pfitzer wrote about number 7, Träumerei; this comment applies for every piece of the Kinderszenen.

From Belgium with Love - Eddy Vanoosthuyse - Clarinet

From Belgium with Love - Eddy Vanoosthuyse - Clarinet
ID: ACDBH053-2
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Clarinet

Jean Hippolyte Oscar Louël had in 1992 niet kunnen bedenken dat er ruim 12 jaar na het schrijven van zijn Clarinet Concerto een CD samengesteld zou worden waarbij naast zijn eigen compositie ook andere klarinet concerti van Vlaamse componisten terug te vinden zou zijn. Hoewel deze vier componisten in de periode 1990-1999 hun klarinet concerto componeerden, zijn deze geen generatiegenoten. Deze componisten hebben een opmerkelijk eigen stijl. Brossé melodieus en verhalend, Louël kleurend en impressionistisch van aard, dodekafonische invloeden welke altijd melodisch blijven, verraden Verbesselt en Jan Van der Roost met zijn veelkleurigheid en verhalende composities sluiten de cd af. Dit alles samengebracht in een voortreffelijk warm, sonoor klinkend klarinetspel van Eddy Vanoosthuyse. Eens te meer laat hij ons ervaren dat de klarinet een bijzonder instrument is met vele gedaanten en karaktereigenschappen. Deze prachtige composities maken dat deze cd oprecht “From Belgium with Love” genoemd mag worden.

Ferenc Liszt, the superstar, a man of the world, idolised by women, ambassador of freedom, who revolutionised piano technique, the first true ‘European’...
