ID: GD194
CDs: 1

Kolektion: Chamber MusicSubkolektion: Film Music

Film music from the films: 'The Frontier", "History of Fear", Gori, Gori, Oganche", "Dream

Beyond the Frontiers is the title of the CD with music by Theodosii Spassov, a phenomenon in Bulgarian art of performing, who does not fit in the traditional concept of a kaval-player and musician. In fact he was the first to have "transferred" the kaval from folk to classical music and jazz, turning it into an instrument capable of expressing a broad range of feelings, moods and images. The CD features film music composed and in most of the recordings performed by Theodosii Spassov, the capacities of whose kaval are indeed beyond the frontier. The pleasure of experiencing Spassov's art is immense for both amateurs and professionals. The latter will appreciate the unique synthesis of thematic structure, form, invention, folklore, image and sound.

Performed by: Theodosii Spassov (kaval, wooden pipe, vocal), Simfonieta Orchestra, Female Folk Choir, conductor Vanya Moneva, Zornitsa Ensemble, Ilia Iliev (clarinet), Vocal and instrumental group, Tsvetanka Varimezova (vocal), Jazz Trio: Roumen Toskov (piano), Georgi Donchev (bas), Hristo Yotsov (percussion); Boris Dinev (tupan, bells), Galina Durmushliyska (vocal), unknown monk (clapper)

Type: CD
Kolektion: InstrumentalSubkolektion: Film Music

This release demonstrates a tendency toward including ever more spheres of the musical art in the company's catalogue. It presents music by Christian Leroy (b.1952), the Belgian composer and founder of the famous trio Metarythmes de l'air. Later it was transformed into a quintet in which besides Christian Leroy participate Philippe Saucez, Jose Bedeur, and Jeannot Gillis. The ensemble became famous for its international performances and its spirit for experimenting. Leroy is well known as author of the music for modern synthetic shows and is sought after by eminent poets, painters and directors. His music for the film Nanouk L'Esquimau (shot in 1921) through the skillful use of the quintet renders the atmosphere and the nature of the extreme North. Leroy has an amazing insight for sound, which he treats like expression of colours, and for combinations of sounds, radiating certain impressions (morning in the North, the sun shining in the eyes of the Eskimo children, etc.). Both with Nanouk l'Esquimau and Dracula (shot in 1931) Leroy revives the tradition to make the sound-track on live, to illustrate feelings and conditions through music and in this way sends us back to the age of the silent movie and the light music. In fact Dracula (directed by Tod Browning) is the first of a series of pictures on this topic. The fragments recorded on the CD give an idea about the mastership of Leroy and the performers in the genre of film music.

Metarythmes de l'air: Christian Leroy (piano, percussions, synthesizers), Philippe Sauces (clarinets), Jose Bedeur (double-bass), Jeannot Gillis (violin)

Music for Abel Gance's classic silent film Napoleon: Eagle of Destiny
Carl Davis’ score for the epic 1921 silent movie Napoleon has come to be recognised as a milestone in modern day scoring for silent films. The film when shown is across three screens and is a monumental epic of over five hours in duration when screened in its entirety, and new fragments are still being discovered. Carl Davis was commissioned to write the score at over five hours it was to be the longest in cinema history. The release here is an abridged version. Kevin Brownlow responsible for restoring and bringing a revival of the film said it was the finest score he had ever heard for a film, it not only fitted precisely the action and mood of every sequence, it enhanced the emotional quality of the film. ‘Exalting’, is the only word to describe the effect. The critics were equally enthusiastic. ‘This is the cinematic wonder of the age’ said the Times, ‘and Carl Davis’ score provides a perfect accompaniment- subtle but grandiloquent.’
The score is a mixture of existing music arrangements of traditional material and new composition. During his research into the Hollywood series Carl Davis discovered that this method was the way the composers for silent film worked. This score is his tribute to them.

Michael Nyman- VertovSounds - A Sixth Part of the World, The Eleventh Year- The Composers Cut Series - Vol.4

Subkolektion: Film Music

Michael Nyman has now completed scores for the three major films that the pioneering Soviet filmmaker Dziga Vertov made in the late 1920s. To ‘Man with a Movie Camera’ he has added ‘The Eleventh Year’ and ‘A Sixth Part of the World’ and as a unique experiment for MN Records he has created a new Michael Nyman Band work - by making a montage of material from both of the soundtracks into a single, continuous piece which runs for 77 minutes.
I wrote the score for Man with a Movie Camera in 2002 and now, with A Sixth Part of the World and The Eleventh Year, I am in the privileged position of having written soundtracks for the three major films that Dziga Vertov made at the end of the 1920s and on which his reputation is based in the west. In the same way as I avoided reading Vertov’s background notes to the music he designated for Man with a Movie Camera when I wrote my score, so with A Sixth Part and The Eleventh Year research was deliberately limited and most of my interest seemed to focus on the similarities and differences between those two films and Man with a Movie Camera (and had me musing on an interesting trio of self-borrowers -Handel, Laurence Sterne and Vertov, with whom I have a strong affinity!) My reaction was to Vertov’s images and the process of their organisation - to the two interrelated, but dissimilar worlds that he presented and promoted in these two films.
Subsequent research, with the help of Barbara Wurm and other archivists from the Austrian Film Institute (which has released a DVD of the two films with the new soundtracks), has allowed me to appreciate differently the content and the context (both cinematic and political) of these two films. And my discovery of the book ? Lines of Resistance: Dziga Vertov and the Twenties, edited by Yuri Tsivian (2004) has thrown up some wonderful supplementary texts like the critic Izmail Urazov's appraisal of A Sixth Part of the World. He writes very powerfully about the musicality of Vertov’s film, which instinctively had influenced my score:

‘Vertov edits sequences like a composer’

That is the cause of the emotion which the film arouses. You cannot relate it; there is no plot, no intensification of the action, but there is an intensification of emotion. Like in music. That is where the emotion comes from. Vertov leads the 'melody', returning to it, playing with dissonances, using the exoticism of the polar snows and the burning hot sands, almost like something beyond sense, almost like a composer using the texture of the sounds.

And within Vertov’s sequences there is a rhythm, with which he infects the viewer: 'a Negress with a child on her back, hammering into your consciousness the tempo and rhythm of the montage of dancing legs, linked to the rhythm of a dance, of the movement of machines...' (Tsivian, p 187)

VERTOV SOUNDS represents a very different approach to the way of processing a soundtrack album: since the music for both films is sectional but continuous and, like Vertov, constantly refers back on itself, there are no ?named tracks' that can be separated out in the way that, say, ?Chasing Sheep is Best Left to Shepherds' from The Draughtsman's Contract has become an independent concert work. So the music for the films is presented as a non-stop montage of alternating sequences (sometimes quite complex in themselves) from each film.

Michael Nyman- Nyman Brass - Wingates Band -including UK Premiere Recording of music from the film ‘The Ogre’

Michael Nyman- Nyman Brass - Wingates Band -including UK Premiere Recording of music from the film ‘The Ogre’
ID: MNRCD110
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subkolektion: Brass

The two main sequences on the album are from the scores to The Ogre [Volker Schlondorff, 1996] and The Libertine [Laurence Dunmore, 2005]. The Ogre was never seen in the UK and the soundtrack not released here, so this will be the first time many people will have heard this music. Originally composed for brass ensemble with saxophones, Wingates Band's performance is not hugely different from the original.

The album is completed with the Michael Nyman Band classics, In Re Don Giovanni and Chasing sheep is best left to shepherds from The Draughtman's Contract [Peter Greenaway, 1982], where the music sounds very different from the original performances. Michael Nyman says, 'the whole sound-world was transformed. Things like repeated rhythms which I originally gave to piano are punchier, edgier, more dangerous on cornets and trombones.'

Wingates Band was formed in 1873 by the members of the Bible Class of Wingates Independent Methodist Church in Westhoughton, Bolton, in response to a challenge from the members of Westhoughton Old Band, which had been in existence since 1858. By the turn of the century, led by legendary 'giant' of the British brass band movement Willaim Rimmer, Wingates had been turned into one of the top bands in the country. In 1906 the Band achieved national fame by winning the 'double': the British Open and the British National Championships. The following year Wingates astounded the brass band world by completing the double again. www.wingatesband.org.

Michael Nyman described it as 'a privilege' to work with Wingates. Although his music was very different from the kind that the players were used to, he said they 'picked up the style, especially the formality of the music, and it soon sounded second nature to them… I loved the spirit of the playing, the instant dedication and the energy in what is a very new sound world for me.'

The first Michael Nyman Band Album originally released in 1981
Includes first recording of In Re Don Giovanni

Beautifully packaged in a 6 panel digipack and including two limited edition posters of the the original UK and Japanese LP artwork.

Critically acclaimed as Nyman’s groundbreaking record that combined minimalist, experimentalist music and jazz improvisation for the first time, this album has only ever been available on the rarest of long-since deleted vinyl.

Most of the music on Michael Nyman was material from the early films by Peter Greenaway such as "Bird Anthem" (Act Of God) and "Bird List Song" (The Falls). The album also includes his first concert work for the band, "In Re Don Giovanni" which was released as a single on Les Disques du Crepuscule (home of Cabaret Voltaire, Durutti Column and Josef K amongst others) under the title Mozart. The most groundbreaking track on Michael Nyman, however, is "Waltz in F", a piece Nyman wrote for art students whilst teaching at Trent Polytechnic in 1977, Nyman subsequently commandeering two modern jazz improvisers, Evan Parker and Peter Brotzman, to "destroy" this piece. Ultimately, Parker and Brotzman ended up playing over and around ten separate tracks whilst Nyman and Cunningham mixed in their Waltz.
