ID: NMCD163
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

Keisuke Okazaki, Jonathan Powell, Esbjerg Ensemble, Christopher Austin

Morgan Hayes' delicate yet manic Violin Concerto forms the centrepiece to this debut release on NMC showcasing his instrumental and ensemble music. Includes his transcription of Squarepusher's Port Rhombus


Morgan Hayes won the Guildhall School of Music & Drama's coveted Lutoslawski Prize in 1995; he subsequently studied with Michael Finnissy, Simon Bainbridge and Robert Saxton.

This is Morgan's first full-length CD.

Port Rhombus is a transcription of a work by drum & bass/electronica artist Squarepusher who appears on Warp Records.

"Morgan Hayes captured an elegiac melancholy in his transformation of Squarepusher’s Port Rhombus" Tom Service, Guardian

This is the first time leading Danish group Esbjerg Ensemble has recorded for a UK label. Morgan Hayes’ delicate yet manic Violin Concerto forms the centrepiece to this debut release on NMC showcasing his instrumental and ensemble music. Included are his transcription of Squarepusher's Port Rhombus, commissioned for the South Bank Centre's 2003 Ether Festival, which captures the beauty and fragility of this experimental drum'n'bass work from 1996; Lucky Speech for solo violin, inspired by a character from Beckett’s Waiting for Godot; a collection of piano miniatures Strides Book I & II; and the dramatic solo piano work Puppet Theatre, which refers to the title of the painting by Paul Klee, featured on the front cover of this CD.

Jonathan Harvey - Bird Concerto with Pianosong

Jonathan Harvey - Bird Concerto with Pianosong
ID: NMCD177
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

Hideki Nagano, London Sinfonietta, David Atherton, Gareth Hulse, Paul Archibald, Tim Gill, Sound Intermedia

Jonathan Harvey won a Gramophone Award in 2008 for his NMC CD Body Mandala. The works, commissioned by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, explore his fascination with Eastern philosophies.

The BBC Symphony Orchestra celebrates the life and work of Jonathan Harvey in two days of concerts, films and talks at the Barbican, London. Total Immersion runs from the 28-29 January 2012.

Harvey’s Bhakti was the first release on NMC in 1989.

Jonathan was invited by Pierre Boulez to work at IRCAM in the early 1980s.

Bird Concerto - Harvey's hommage to Messiaen - is a celebration of the kind of technical advances in electroacoustics which the creator of Oiseaux exotiques and the Catalogue d’oiseaux was never able to explore. Harvey started writing the piece when he was in California and says that ‘indigo bunting, orchard oriole, golden crowned sparrow ... are some of the forty colourful Californian birds whose songs and cries sparked the ignition of this work’. The bird sounds have been innovatively transformed to create a mesmeric dialogue between nature and art. Harvey sets the piano soloist (the work was commissioned by pianist Joanna MacGregor) the challenge of combining piano playing and triggering a sampler/ synthesizer so that the live electronics can be realised in real-time performance. Other works on this disc are Other Presences, for trumpet and multi-loop effects, and two versions of the canonic Ricercare una melodia (1984) originally written for trumpet and quadraphonic tape-delay system, but here performed on oboe and cello, with live electronics from Sound Intermedia.

J.F. Rameau - Keyboard Works - Jill Crossland, piano

J.F. Rameau - Keyboard Works - Jill Crossland, piano
ID: SIGCD278
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection:
Instrumental

Jean-Philippe Rameau’s modest output of works for keyboard (around 50 in total) are a crowning influence in French 18th-century instrumental music - summed up by one commentator as being “a paradigm of his mastery, for surveying it is to review many facets of his greatness”. Famed for his additional contributions to French opera and for his advances in musical theory of the day, his keyboard works are beguiling in their mix of subtle beauty and virtuosity. The characterful works invoke both pictorial and poetic themes - a style that performer Jill Crossland describes as an “ability to characterise, to construct a miniature world in a few instants.”

Jeremy Dale Roberts - Croquis - Kreutzer Quartet

Jeremy Dale Roberts - Croquis - Kreutzer Quartet
ID: NMCD151
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Quartet

Croquis ('Sketches') - a sequence of characteristic miniatures for string trio commissioned by BBC Radio 3 to be spaced between programmes across an evening’s broadcasting, recorded here by members of the Kreutzer Quartet - is coupled with Tristia, a powerful work for violin and piano performed by Peter Sheppard Skaerved and Aaron Shorr.

Kreutzer Quartet
The Kreutzer Quartet has forged an enviable reputation as one of the Europe's most dynamic and innovative string quartets. They are the dedicatees of numerous works, and over many years have forged creative partnerships with composers including Sir Michael Tippett, David Matthews, Michael Finnissy, Judith Weir, and Haflidi Hallgrimsson. They have a particularly strong relationship to a cross-section of leading American composers, having collaborated intensively with George Rochberg in the last few years of his life, as long as working closely with figures as Elliott Schwartz, and the prolific symphonist Gloria Coates. As recording artists they have won critical acclaim for their discs on the Naxos, Metier, and Chandos labels. They are Artists in Association at Quartet at York University, and at Wiltons Music Hall. Their work in collaboration with art galleries has garnered much attention, and large audiences, particularly their annual residency at the Tate Gallery, St Ives.

Rob Keeley - Songs, Chimes and Dances

Rob Keeley - Songs, Chimes and Dances
ID: NMCD179
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Saxophone

Rob Keeley was born in Bridgend in 1960. He studied with Oliver Knussen at the Royal College of Music, Magdalen College Oxford under Bernard Rose, and later with Robert Saxton.

As a pianist Keeley has premiered works by, among others, Harrison Birtwistle, Michael Finnissy, Jonathan Cole, Richard Emsley and Nicola Moro.

He is currently Senior Lecturer in Composition at King's College, London.

Keeley's music is jazz tinged with elements of Satie and Poulenc.

Bayan Northcott writes ... Rob Keeley is both a ‘natural’ as a composer, and a bit of an enigma. While his music always unfolds lucidly, often engagingly, it resists easy categorization - at least accordingly to current critical notions. Apparently untouched by avantgarderie, minimalism or post-modern poly-stylistics, it might seem to fall into a traditionalist slot or even be mistaken as academic. Yet his music sounds singularly undriven by theory or the fi ndings of analysis; nor will one so easily discover textbook sonata or fugal procedures in his works. More frequently he generates his forms by flexible refrain-and-chorus procedures, and sometimes, the illusion of traditional thematicism from variable ostinato or change-ringing permutations - suggesting his omnivorous ear has absorbed more ‘advanced’ techniques, from Ligeti, perhaps, or Birtwistle, but in his own way.
