T. Wilson - A Chamber Portrait - Edinburgh Quartet - S.Smith, piano - A. Neave, guitar
ID: DCD34079
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

An influential figure both personally and musically, Thomas Wilson was the leading light in a group of composers whose vision and technical assurance brought an international modernism into 20th-century Scottish music. In the chamber works collected here, moments of extraordinary stillness continually release into fast, propulsive music whose compelling energies are matched by the individual and collective virtuosity of Simon Smith, Allan Neave and the Edinburgh Quartet.

Matyas Seiber - String Quartets 1-3 by Edinburgh Quartet

Matyas Seiber - String Quartets 1-3 by Edinburgh Quartet
ID: DCD34082
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Quartet

‘Mátyás Seiber’s three string quartets span his career, from the astonishingly assured student essay of the first quartet, composed at the age of just eighteen, to the mature synthesis of his third and final Quartetto Lirico. Seiber’s work was nourished by several of the twentieth century’s most significant stylistic trends, from jazz and serialism to the folk music of his native Hungary. He was also, like many of the mid-century’s most important artists, an émigré and an influential teacher; Hugh Wood’s booklet essay pays tribute to his lasting influence on a generation of British composers.

Subcollection: Quartet

Fell Clarinet Quartet:
Colin Blamey, clarinet & bass clarinet
Helen Bywater, clarinet & C clarinet
Marianne Rawles, clarinet & Eb clarinet
Lenny Sayers, clarinet & bass clarinet


The Fells' journey through Eastern Europe takes in sophisticated reworkings of Bartók and earthy reimaginings of klezmer, and introduces some unfamiliar names along the way. The four clarinets lend a wonderfully suggestive reediness to these laments and dances which enhances the music's rustic tone. With the Fell Quartet as your guide, this whirlwind tour of Eastern Europe is sure to be seductive, virtuosic, and not without some moments of real grit.

ID: DCD34085
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Percussion

Martyn Bennett was one of Scotland’s most innovative musicians, combining the traditional and modern, the local and international. A long-planned collaboration with Mr McFall’s Chamber was never realised during his tragically short lifetime. For their second disc with Delphian, Robert McFall has put together a programme of his own sympathetic arrangements of Martyn’s music alongside original works by Fraser Fifield, another of Scotland’s virtuosic musical innovators. The premiere recording of Martyn’s ‘Piece’ epitomises his sophisticated mastery of fusion.

Mozart - The Oboe in Mozart Chamber Music

Mozart - The Oboe in Mozart Chamber Music
ID: CC2007
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Oboe

The CD booklet contains a 2,000-word essay by Diana Ambache on the music in the CD in English, Italian and German. The photos include more from the K452 recording session and two entries from Mozart's Catalogue written in his own hand.

Human feeling is always at the centre of Mozart's music, and the collection of oboe works here illustrates this with colour and variety. As ever, Mozart excpresses everything from exuberant joy to deep melancholy, with a profound understanding of the expression of emotion. His paradoxes intrigue us; his humour entertains us; he seduces us with his beauty -and the oboe is an excellent vehicle for all this. The five works on the CD include three originally written for the oboe and two fine adaptations.

The year 1781 was an eventful one for Mozart. As well as having the première of 'Idomineo' on his 25th birthday, he also wrote the Oboe Quartet and Sonata featured here, as well as the Concerto for Two Pianos, K365. In May he had the now famous row with his patron Archbishop Collerado, which resulted in his move to Vienna and a new life as a freelance musician.
