Howard Skempton - Ben Somewhen

Howard Skempton - Ben Somewhen
ID: NMCD135
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

Howard Skempton’s first full-length disc for NMC - following the best-selling single Lento - is Ben Somewhen. It pairs chamber music performed by BCMG - ranging from solo cello to the exuberant yet very English Chamber Concerto - with choral music sung by EXAUDI, including the dancing, evocative setting of Shelley, The Voice of the Spirits. The title work takes its inspiration from the witty line drawings of Ben Hartley.

This disc contrasts Skempton’s choral works-including the dancing, evocative setting of Shelley’s The Voice of the Spirits and the spiritual Rise up, my love-with chamber music ranging from solo cello (the Suite from ‘Delicate’) to the exuberant, yet very English, Chamber Concerto.

Natural History - which she describes as a Taoist Carnival of the Animals-is set to ancient Chinese texts on horses, birds, fish and men and the music hints at an oriental and exotic world and in Moon and Star Weir uses the instruments highest and lowest registers to portray the vast expanse of our universe.

Collection: Opera Collection

The Opera Group's lively production of Edward Rushton's new opera, described as 'part satire on rampant consumerism, part psychological thriller.’

Edward Rushton’s new opera, The Shops is described as ‘part satire on rampant consumerism, part psychological thriller’. Its central character, Christoph Schmalhans, is an obsessive stamp collector. He manages to steal prize examples from museums with the aid of his girlfriend Francesca, who distracts attention by causing scenes. His activities eventually attract the interest of the police and psychologists. In between, there is a running commentary on the phenomenon of shopaholics, along with a song-and-dance number from members of a mutual support group.

Darren Abrahams (tenor), Anna Dennis (soprano), Phyllis Cannan (contralto), Richard Burkhard (baritone), Louise Mott (mezzo-soprano), Paul Reeves (bass)
