This is the third CD in the new Metier series of contemporary lyrical British music - following MSV28520 Music by Veale and Crawford and MSV28522 Pipings and Bowings - Lyrical English Chamber Music by Hurd, Milford & Blackford.

As a further release in our exploration of lyrical English Chamber Music (following MSV28520 - Music by Veale and Crawford and MSV 28522 Pipings and Bowings - Music by Hurd Milford and Blackford) here we have a disc featuring some lovely pieces composed by David Dubery. Being largely self-taught he works in a traditional language preferring miniature to medium sized projects. His music is tonal, rooted in past traditions, and working with dancers and actors has ensured rhythm and movement play an integral part in its composition.

Jane Wells- Occasional Music - The Composers Ensemble, Peter Wiegold

Jane Wells- Occasional Music - The Composers Ensemble, Peter Wiegold
ID: MSVCD92043
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Vocal Collection

Composer Jane Wells says that much of her music is inspired by projects with specific communities for special occasions - hence the title of the CD. Ultramarine and Wherever Next started out as music with dance. Wells's music is "of many moods" because of this, and has a life not just in itself but in the circumstances and events from which it was conceived.

Pieces written as a student (her composition teachers included Jonathan Harvey) were first performed at London venues in Society for the Promotion of New Music concerts. Commissions such as Composition for clarinet quintet followed (also broadcast on Radio 3) as well as various pieces composed for dance which were performed at the ICA, Riverside Studios, regional festivals, abroad and on Channel 4 TV (‘…set to a witty score for oboe and dripping water…’ New York Times).

She left London in 1987 to become composer/musician-in-residence at a small arts centre on the North Norfolk coast and wrote In These Places which was performed by John Harle with the County Youth Orchestra at St Andrews Hall, Norwich. Other large-scale pieces have included To the Turning of the Millennium (for baritone, children’s choir, small ensemble and tape), Here’s What I Saw (a half-evening of music-theatre) and Playing The Game for symphony orchestra premiered in Chelmsford.

A mid-length CD of five small-scale pieces played by the Composers Ensemble is available on the Metier label (‘an engaging saxophone solo…a splendid miniature cantata…’ Tempo magazine). Time Song (for counter-tenor, recorder and ‘cello) is included on the CD, ‘Pied Piper’, released in 2009 on the Campion Cameo label. Her composing takes place in the context of a busy programme of community music project- leading with people of many ages and abilities.
