Beat Furrer - Nuun

Beat Furrer - Nuun
ID: KAI0012062
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

The Austrian composer of Swiss origin considers his art to be a "view over the moving matter 'sound'": Beat Furrer does not develop sounds, he observes them, his music does not unfold dynamically with time, but attempts to rescind it: "No beginning", writes Furrer, "everything is present from the start". "nuun" thus filters out the individual layers of an initially almost impenetrable sound, as when you suddenly discover structures in a monochrome painting upon taking a closer look. Furrer then compares the sound dramaturgy of "still" with an electrical circular saw which when set into operation almost inaudibly unfolds greatest power and energy - until it encounters resistance.

Johannes Maria Staud -Apeiron

Johannes Maria Staud -Apeiron
ID: KAI0012672
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: New Music

When Johannes Maria Staud refers in a commentary to one of his works to the pre-Socratic philosopher Anaximander and the latter’s contrasting pair of concepts apeiron (unlimited or infinite) and peras (limited or finite), he outlines a fundamental problem: the conflict between associative invention and logical development. The two compositions of the same name, however, are less suited to separate the two aspects of this relationship than to explore the various priorities between them. (Daniel Ender)

Includes booklet with texts by Daniel Ender, Durs Grünbein and Johannes Maria Staud


Born in 1974, Austrian composer Johannes Maria Staud has established a solid international career, including a substantial presence in the U.S., as featured guest composer at Tanglewood, and with a three-year residency with the Cleveland Orchestra. Apeiron, the highlighted work on this disc, is scored for a massive orchestra of 101 players, and while it has moments of gossamer delicacy, when Staud pulls out all the stops, he makes good use of all 101 players to create music of cataclysmic power. The title is taken from a cosmological theory developed by Greek philosopher Anaximander to describe the primal chaos that embraced and incorporated all things, and from which all things developed, and it's an apt metaphor for the sound of the music itself. Staud has said that the development of his pieces is organic rather than architectural, and Apeiron has a spontaneity and unpredictability that's more viscerally gripping than analytically explicable. Apeiron is the most intriguing and engaging piece.

Michele Benuzzi: Hamburg 1705 - Eighteenth-century works for harpsichod

Michele Benuzzi: Hamburg 1705 - Eighteenth-century works for harpsichod
ID: LIR021
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Harpsichord

A recording featuring some of the finest works to emerge from the musical society of early 18th-century Hamburg, including some Handel ‘favourites’, Mattheson’s delightful 3rd suite, and a rare chance to hear the work of Graupner, incredibly prolific in his output, but not yet achieving the recognition that he deserves. The Partita on this disc demonstrates admirably how well his works sit alongside those of his more famous contemporaries.

Michele Benuzzi studied harpsichord with Ottavio Dantone and obtained the harpsichord Performing Diploma at the Royal College of Music in London. He is noted for the intelligence and sensitivity of his interpretations, and for the extraordinary tonal qualities he obtains from the harpsichord.

The Galeazzi Ensemble: Haydn Revisited

The Galeazzi Ensemble: Haydn Revisited
ID: LIR019
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Quartet

Following the success of their two previous CDs on LIR, “The Age of Elegance” and “Views of Vienna”, the Galeazzi Ensemble continue their exploration of the classical flute quartet. J.A.Schmittbauer, about whom little is known, cleverly published his quartet under the name of his more prolific colleague, Haydn, to ensure his better sales. It is teamed on this CD with 2 of Haydn’s own quartets, not originally written for flute, but well-suited to the instrument in the flexible classical tradition, and one of his string trios.

The Galeazzi Ensemble was formed in 1995 in order to explore Classical and Early Romantic chamber music using instruments of the period and, as well as performing works from the standard repertoire, it aims to introduce many neglected works to today’s audiences. The group takes its name from the composer and theorist Francesco Galeazzi (1758-1818). Better known today for his theoretical writings, Galeazzi’s most influential work was a two volumed treatise entitled Elementi teorico-pratici di musica (1791-6).

ESCAPE VELOCITY - Benjamin Wallfisch, composer

ESCAPE VELOCITY - Benjamin Wallfisch, composer
ID: QTZ2049
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano and Clarinet

Described by Humphrey Burton on BBC Radio 3 as "a major new name on the new music horizon", Benjamin Wallfisch's fast-growing list of large-scale orchestral, vocal and chamber works shows him to be a serious composer for our times. Over thirty works have been commissioned to date.
A 2005 commission from Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra was the genesis of the symphonic movement entitled Speed which displays the juxtaposing of extremes in Benjamin Wallfisch's language "great energy contrasted with slow-moving, long-breathed and yearning melody. His first String Quartet was composed for the Belcea in 2001, followed by a second for the Coull. His works outside the concert hall include a major ballet score entitled 21, commissioned by the Rambert Dance Company and premiered at London's Sadler's Wells, and a feature film score for Thomas Vinterberg's and Lars von Trier's Dear Wendy, nominated as "Discovery of the Year" in the 2005 World Soundtrack Awards. From his Opus 1, the luminous and glistening Sudden Light (commissioned by the Manchester Camerata), to his latest works including the stratospheric Escape Velocity, a piece which received its premiere the 2006 BBC Proms, there is a consistent, compelling integrity and a palpable, powerful personality.
He begins a new work by building a strong idea of its overall structure into which he feeds ideas and 'elements which all share the same DNA', and where everything, from the overall rhythmic impetus to the tiniest melodic cell, justifies its existence through its place in a complex network of interconnections. Characteristically, he places emotion at the core of the music, along with a clarity of message that must be communicable, and he taps into a rich and instinctive vein of melody which is both attractive and challenging. Ben's music is, by design, vivid and disciplined, passionate and intense.
He has also built an important parallel career as a conductor and believes that conducting, just like composition, is creative, working to achieve a clearly defined vision that must be communicated with respect and conviction.
