John Woolrich - The Ghost in the Machine

John Woolrich - The Ghost in the Machine
ID: NMCD071
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Orchestral Works
Subcollection: Orchestra

Four substantial orchestral works by John Woolrich: The Barber's Timepiece, inspired by a short story by Italo Calvino; the Oboe Concerto, featuring Nicholas Daniel; The Ghost in the Machine, which explores the idea of order sliding into chaos; and the Viola Concerto, which is structured as a cycle of 'songs without words', alluding to Tristan, Mozart's Idomeneo and Cosi fan tutte, Beethoven's An die ferne Geliebte and madrigals by Monteverdi.
Editor's Choice: "A strong and individual voice in music of real substance. The fine soloists bring the concertos vividly to life. Well worth exploring."Gramophone 2001

Vic Hoyland - In Transit

Vic Hoyland - In Transit
ID: NMCD072
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Orchestral Works
Subcollection: Orchestra

Vic Hoyland's energetic and forceful work, In transit, pitches massive orchestral forces against each other; the central mood of the work has been described by the composer as "a joy in generating energy - making numbers dance". The joint inspirations for Vixen are Hoyland's earlier work Fox, an 11th-century Persian philosopher, and the intricate geometries of Muslim architecture. This wide-ranging work for large orchestra contrasts the dark and sensuous orchestral textures of Mahler with exotically Messiaenic percussion.

Julian Anderson - Book of Hours

Julian Anderson - Book of Hours
ID: NMCD121
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Orchestra

Book of Hours combines ensemble and live electronics in a tribute to the glories of late medieval art; it uses electronic sound as (in the composer's words) "an extra colour … rather as gold-leaf might be applied in a Medieval manuscript".

This exploration of other times and sound-worlds is continued in Eden, Four American Choruses and Symphony (inspired by a painting of Lake Keitele in Finland); the disc is completed by Imagin'd Corners, an exuberant showpiece for five horns and orchestra.
Note on Recording (Track 9 "noise")
We would like to point out that the crackling noise present on track 2 of Book of Hours (track 9 of the album) is intentional. The composer's idea was to begin Part 2 of the work as a distorted version of Part 1 (track 8). Julian Anderson has explained to us that he is recreating - with electronics - the surface noise of LPs bought in Eastern Europe before the fall of the Berlin Wall (he has a strong interest in Eastern European music).

Type: CD
Collection: Orchestral Works

Judith Weir's major orchestral works. including Natural History, Forest and The Welcome Arrival of Rain

Weir’s music - often inspired by her love of nature and her interest in the world around her - is fresh, intelligent, approachable and evocative. Natural History - which she describes as a Taoist Carnival of the Animals-is set to ancient Chinese texts on horses, birds, fish and men and the music hints at an oriental and exotic world and in Moon and Star Weir uses the instruments highest and lowest registers to portray the vast expanse of our universe.

Parapraxis - Works for Bassoon, Orchestra & Choir

Parapraxis - Works for Bassoon, Orchestra & Choir
ID: SIGCD258
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Bassoon

A seductive and fascinating disc for fans of contemporary music, this collection of works for Bassoon with choir and orchestra feature works by British composer Stephen Frost and Norwegian composer Kjell Mørk Karlsen.

The disc’s title work Parapraxis, for solo bassoon and choir, melds together a mix of sacred latin text and secular English poetry, pushing and playing with the illusory ‘boundary’ that seems to exist between the two. The other two works - Frost’s Bassoon Concerto and Karlsen’s Serenata - are beguiling and stimulating pieces that show off the talents of Norwegian bassoonist Sigyn Birkeland and the Belarusian State Chamber Orchestra.

In demand as a soloist, Sigyn Birkeland has been Principal Bassoon in the Norwegian Radio Orchestra since 1992. She continues to champion the instrument by commissioning, performing and recording new works for the instrument in a variety of unique ensembles and settings.
