Songs of Cricket - Cantabile - The London Quartet
ID: SIGCD217
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Quartet

THE LONDON QUARTET with
All titles arranged by The London Quartet unless otherwise indicated.
Chris Hatt piano - tracks marked †
Alexander L’Estrange - piano and vocal
percussion (track 1), stick bass (track 13)
Richard Stilgoe - tracks 5, 15 and 19
Eliza Lumley - tracks 9, 10, 16 and 18

Cantabile (also known as ‘The London Quartet’) have been wowing audiences across the world since the 1980s with their shows that blend performance flair, comic timing and a deep passion for high-quality vocal music.
This album is an eclectic tribute to the very British obsession that is cricket, bringing together works from the turn of the century (school songs from Harrow and Eton) to the present day (Jiggery Pokery from the 2009 Ivor Novello nominated album The Duckworth-Lewis Method) - as well as from the well-known (Roy Harper’s When an Old Cricketer Leaves the Crease) to the obscure (The Summer Game, from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s little-known musical Cricket, commissioned for the Queen’s 60th Birthday). Featuring guest performances from the likes of Richard Stilgoe, Rory Bremner and Tim Rice, this album should prove a must-buy for cricket- and music-fans alike.

ID: NMCD163

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.

Michael Finnissy - Second Third String Quartets - Kreutzer Quartet

Michael Finnissy - Second Third String Quartets - Kreutzer Quartet
ID: NMCD180
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Quartet

Asked to sum up how he would characterize his two String Quartets - written in a neoclassical style and influenced by the sound world of Bruckner and Schoenberg - Michael Finnissy answered, ‘rich and chewy’!
In 2011 Michael Finnissy created a daring new interpretation of Mozart's Requiem. To influence his completion of the parts left missing after the 18th century composer’s death he said "I imagined Mozart in the present day, working to complete the Requiem, looking back across the centuries which have passed since his death. I asked myself what composers, musical genres and historical events would have influenced him since 1791- this helped to shape my work.”
Composer Judith Weir says she regards Finnissy as the most important living British composer.
Despite having no score (the piece is a series of parts, each prefaced by the instruction that it is 'intended that parts should drift slightly apart')
Michael Finnissy's Second Quartet is 'based on a compact Haydn model' - originally intended to be the 'Lark', Op.64, No.5 - and traces of its antecedent can be discerned within it. By contrast, the Third Quartet incorporates actual birdsong, both transcribed and recorded, in the composer's response to the natural world and man's place in it: the instruments gradually fade out, to leave only the sound of birds.

Grigory Sokolov Plays Beethoven - Scriabin - Arapov

Grigory Sokolov Plays Beethoven - Scriabin - Arapov
ID: MELCD1002240
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Piano and Orchestra

Firma Melodiya presents recordings of the outstanding St Petersburg pianist Grigory Sokolov.

This musician’s performance is notable for particular concentration and complete immersion in the musical element. His manner amazes with perfection of technique in the absence of external effects of any kind.

Grigory Sokolov is one of the few modern pianists who always include intellectual piano masterpieces in their programmes, which requires a special mood from both the performer and the audience - Beethoven’s sonatas of the latter period, J S Bach’s 'The Art of Fugue', Brahms’ last pieces.

Most of Sokolov’s recordings were made from live broadcasts in Leningrad/St Petersburg and Moscow - he prefers concert performances to studio work.

This set combines the large-scale dramatic canvases of Beethoven’s sonatas with the restless romantic heroics of Scriabin’s Third Sonata where Sokolov emphasizes the Promethean spirit without erasing the individuality of the Russian genius of the 20th century.

However, what makes this set particularly interesting is Grigory Sokolov’s recordings of the works by his contemporary, Leningrad composer Boris Arapov. The piano sonata and concerto for violin, piano, percussion and chamber orchestra recorded by the pianist are released on Melodiya for the first time.

Grigory Sokolov made the featured recordings of the works by Beethoven, Scriabin and Arapov between 1972 and 1988.

Concerto for violin, piano and percussion with chamber orchestra
with Nikolay Moskalenko (percussions) & khail Vaiman (violin)

Beethoven:
