DETOURS - GORDON McPHERSON - PSAPPHA

DETOURS - GORDON McPHERSON - PSAPPHA
ID: MSVCD92073
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

"Detours" is inspired by the composer's personal memories and reflections concerning cars. It draws on sources and references of a distinctly non-classical nature, but cannot in any way be called "crossover" - more it is a fusion of genres, as are the other works, brilliantly performed by Psappha.

Unknown Britten

Unknown Britten
ID: NMCD140
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano and Clarinet

This CD features eight premiere recordings:
• Three additional songs of Les Illuminations
• In memoriam Dennis Brain
• Rondo Concertante
• Elegy for Strings
• Variations for Solo Piano
• and the completion of Movements for a Clarinet Concerto.

The stunning performance of Les Illuminations by world-renowned soprano Sandrine Piau has been made possible thanks to the French label Naïve kindly releasing Sandrine from her exclusive recording contract for this CD. The ‘Clarinet Concerto’ was written for jazz star Benny Goodman, but Britten never completed it as the sketches were impounded by US Customs in 1941. It was Britten’s intention to resume work on the piece in 1943 but he never got round to it and so it remained a fragment, not performed until edited by Colin Matthews in 1990.
Britten intended the additional three songs recorded here-also setting Rimbaud-to be part of Les Illuminations. Sandrine Piau’s love affair with the music of Benjamin Britten blossomed when she was chosen to sing the role of Flora in Britten’s Turn of the Screw at Radio France.
In memoriam Dennis Brain for 4 horns, strings and tubular bells commemorates the great horn player for whom Britten wrote his Serenade for tenor, horn and strings. He died in a car crash in 1957.
