ULRICH HEINEN, cello - J.S.Bach - B.A. Zimmermann - Howard Skempton - Simon Holt - Gerald Barry - Hans werner Henze

ULRICH HEINEN, cello - J.S.Bach - B.A. Zimmermann - Howard Skempton - Simon Holt - Gerald Barry - Hans werner Henze
ID: MSV28511
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental

Cellist Ulrich Heinen has over the years commissioned solo cello pieces from composers Simon Holt, Howard Skempton, and Gerald Barry. He has performed all of them many times, mostly in conjunction with Bach’s cello suites (as demonstrated here) or in connection with the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group. Also included on this recording are two 20th century “classics” - Hans Werner Henze’s Serenade and Bernd Alois Zimmermann’s Sonata.
In order that these modern but very accessible pieces receive exposure to a wider audience, they are presented here with five of the six Bach suites - all played on the same cello (at modern pitch). The sixth and final suite is omitted as that asks for a 5-string cello with a top E-string, and have been performed in this manner by Heinen on many occasions.
Ulrich Heinen came to the UK in 1984 at the request of Sir Simon Rattle to become principal cellist of the CBSO. His formidable technique and musicianship have enabled him to further develop his solo career with numerous recitals, concerts and radio broadcasts. He co-founded the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, which is one of Britain’s most important ensembles for contemporary music.

GERHARD STÄBLER - COMPLETE PIANO MUSIC - PAULO ALVARES, piano
ID: MSVCD92075

Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Gerhard Stäbler is perhaps best known for his avant-garde stage works and chamber music. However he has also composed a fairly substantial body of work for the traditional piano, treated in his unmistakeable and unique way. The music employs extreme virtuosity, a large dynamic range and use of unusual techniques, all taken in his stride by pianist Paulo Alvarez.

MICHAEL FINNISSY - VERDI TRANSCRIPTIONS - IAN PACE, piano

MICHAEL FINNISSY - VERDI TRANSCRIPTIONS - IAN PACE, piano
ID: MSVCD92027
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Amongst modern British composers, the name of Michael Finnissy is particularly eminent; his music can be uncompromising but is always fresh and inventive, as shown in his staggering sets of transcriptions of Verdi arias. Here Ian Pace also presents Finnissy's Fourth and Sixth Piano Concertos, confusingly written for solo piano. A tour de force of composition and performance, this CD was long out of print and has been re-released at mid-price by popular demand. One of the Metier Finnissy series, and a seminal recording in contemporary piano music.

Tristan Murail - Complete Piano Music - Marilyn Nonken, piano
ID: MSVCD92097
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Murail's music belongs to the French tradition of Debussy, Ravel and Messiaen. However it also revitalises the piano for the modern day in a way that is exploratory and startling. His music is not for the piano, it is about the piano, requiring delicacy, spontaneity and an enormous level of skill, such as that displayed by Marilyn Nonken.

Helen Brammen (flute), Elena Artemonova (viola)

The solo piano music of Ives represents an extraordinary achivement. "Experimental" is a word often associated with it. But "experimental" in what sense? Certainly he was exploring a wholly unique and personal style. Ives' music is by turns, exploratory, powerful, sensitive and transcendental always wholly consistent within its own, sometimes highly unusual terms. These qualities are there in abundance in his two crowning achievements the first and second sonatas. The studies and others orbit round these like planets to twin suns.
