Peter Wiegold has spent many years studing Indian and Gamelan music, playing with leading Indian musicians in the Gemini-Bhavan Ensemble and in the English Gamelan Orchestra.
He is currently Professor, Head of Music Research, at Brunel University. In 2007 Peter wrote a highly acclaimed large-scale work for the BBC Proms entitled, He is armoured without for the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, musicians from Uzbekistan, the Coldstream Guards, 80 brass players plus solo trumpet and trombone. It was shortlisted for the Royal Philharmonic Society large-scale composition prize. Peter’s music is influenced by his strong interest in eastern philosophy, especially Buddhism.
Peter Wiegold’s music is a mixture of fully notated, freely improvised and anything in between - he often allows the performers to participate in the creative process. This is his first portrait recording on NMC.
Works on this disc include the plaintive, pastoral Earth, receive an honoured guest, for cor anglais and strings, inspired by WH Auden’s well known elegy for WB Yeats; the elemental Kalachakra for large ensemble depicting the creation of the universe using Tibetan bells and brass; and the bittersweet, Viennese Earth and Stars, commissioned for the 200th anniversary of Mozart’s death and featuring 4 harmonicas to represent an ancient funeral band, dug up from the soil by future generations.

Kalachakra / notes inégales, Peter Wiegold / Earth, Receive an Honoured Guest: Melinda Maxwell (cor anglais), Southbank Sinfonia, Peter Wiegold, conductor / Les Roses: Juliet Fraser (soprano), Martin Butler (piano) / Earth and Stars / notes inégales, Peter Wiegold

ID: ACDHD024-2
CDs: 1
Type: SACD
Collection: Baroque

Girolamo Frescobaldi’s chamber music has been somewhat neglected in favor of his more famous keyboard compositions. This recording presents a selection Frescobaldi’s music for small ensembles as it could have been heard in performance at, for example, an early 17th century salon.Perhaps the best known pieces on this disc are the canzonas for bass instrument and continuo, which are among the earliest published repertoire for solo bass instrument. Like the discant and the discant and bass canzonas, they show a composer exploring the new instrumental conventions of the early 17th century.

WHITE DAWN - SONGS AND SOUNDSCAPES BY DAVID LUMSDAINE

WHITE DAWN - SONGS AND SOUNDSCAPES BY DAVID LUMSDAINE
ID: MSV28519
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Collection: Vocal Collection
Subcollection: Voices and Chamber Ensemble

David Lumsdaine's work is mostly rooted in Australia where he was born though he now lives in the UK. This unique and intriguing set includes pieces for a variety of instruments (not all are vocal) a number of which relate to the Australian landscape and the sounds of its unique wildlife - which are also captured in live 'outback' recordings demonstrating the voices of the birds and creatures which inspired some of the works.

The music itself is most approachable and well written. Definitely an important addition to the modern music repertoire.

Schubert: Die Winterreise -Hans Zender - Eine komponierte Interpretation

Schubert: Die Winterreise -Hans Zender - Eine komponierte Interpretation
ID: KAI0012002
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Collection: Vocal Collection
Subcollection: Voices and Chamber Ensemble

In this "composer's interpretation" Hans Zender takes on the sacred cow that is Franz Schubert's song cycle "Die Winterreise" and reconstructs it, much in the way a modern stage director might recontextualize an opera by changing its setting. The words and melodies remain and the sequence of songs is intact, but the accompaniments are rendered with a sense of fantasy, varying from a folksy guitar-and-harmonium background or the parlor intimacy of a string quartet to a completely modern percussion ensemble. At moments it sounds as if the poor love-forsaken traveler has wandered into a scene from Strauss or Berg, but what prevails above all is the haunted atmosphere of the original, the tandem vision of Schubert and the poet Muller that takes the listener from the pointed immediacy of heartbreak to the blurred numbness of insanity.
