Michael Nyman: Music for Two Pianos - The Zoo Duet

Michael Nyman: Music for Two Pianos - The Zoo Duet
ID: SIGCD506
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Contemporary music

Signum Records is proud to release its first volume of music devoted to one of Britain's best known composers Michael Nyman. The Zoo Duet perform music for two pianos.
Nn one has played a greater role in bridging the divide between the worlds of classical and popular music than Michael Nyman. He has combined Purcell and Mozart, 1950s rock ‘n’ roll, ancient Sumerian quasi-feminist texts, Queens Park Rangers Football Club and innumerable other diverse musical and cultural sources to produce a style of composition which is romantic, eclectic, occasionally chaotic, but uniquely his own.
Like the best classical, jazz or pop music, Nyman’s output does stand up to closer analysis, but the secret of its appeal lies not in the field of academic, but rather in its ability to speak to a large and culturally diverse audience.
Taking a Line for a Second Walk began life in 1986 as an orchestral work from the Houston Ballet. The Water Dances, originally written for Peter Greenaway’s film Making a Splash and appearing here in its five-movement form for the first time, is in part derived from a chord progression taken from a Monteverdi madrigal.
Michael Nyman has demonstrated that it is possible to write progressive and challenging new music without alienating a large part of the classical audience while attracting an even broader rock- and pop-orientated public.

His music answers the most timely questions with works of exceptional quality. His musical language is highly original and strikingly powerful. His integrity and creative imagination, far beyond the merely fashionable and the trendy, represents, in my view, one of the most important contributions to the field today. György Kurtág

Lászlo Vidovszky - Etudes for MIDI Piano
ID: BMCCD014
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Contemporary music
Subcollection: Piano

The MIDI-piano is one of the most pronounced embodiments of the important but dubious connection between technical development and musical instruments. This alienated structure with its cables, opto-electronical sensors and selenic-motors fixed on the body of an instrument of classical proportions reminds us most of space-monsters in science-fiction films, it is a more exact copy of a real piano than today's products of commercialised instrument-making. This duality (traditional sound and mechanical control) means new opportunities mainly in two fields: in the approach of rhythm and dynamics.

If you respond to the chamber music of Bartók and his followers like Ligeti and Veress, you shold seek this out. Emil Petrovics is the genuine article: a composer whose music is etched with fire on the silence around us.

József Sári - Convergences
ID: BMCCD019

Type: CD
Collection: Contemporary music
Subcollection: Brass

József Sári is one of Hungary's most significant composers. It was in quiet seclusion and by going his own way that he developed his style, which has close links to the great musical traditions of Europe and yet remains encaptivatingly original. I feel great respect for him as the sort of musician-phenomenon who might have been characteristic of the Middle Ages.

György Kurtág

The duration of life on earth is measured differently by everyone. Compared to the mammoth tree, which measures time in thousands of years, the giant green turtle with its 150-200 years seems but a child. And what does a beetle feel, that lives no more than a couple of days, or perhaps a few moments only? Everything is relative therefore, and this is of no importance, for some things are Eternal. And there is one who lived only 353 days, that was all the time he spent with us. I dedicate this mass to Him, and to those who were likewise granted so short a stay on this Earth. Béla Faragó
