The music of these two composers spans a period in Russian history that saw a remarkable output of creative and artistic achievement. Michael Ginka died in 1857, Alexei Stanchinsky was born in 1888 and died in 1914 yet both composers share that distinctive Russian romanticism as composers.

The Glory Tree - Chamber works by Cheryl Frances-Hoad

The Glory Tree - Chamber works by Cheryl Frances-Hoad
ID: CHRCD021
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

Cheryl Frances-Hoad has a unique and special compositional voice, recently becoming the youngest composer to win two prizes in the same year at the British Composer Awards, in 2010.

Since winning the BBC Young Composer Competition in 1996, at the age of 15, Cherylʼs works have garnered high praise and awards from all quarters. Over recent years, she has had numerous notable successes, with commissions including solo, chamber, orchestral and choral works, as well as opera.
Champs Hill Records is delighted to present this collection of Cherylʼs chamber music, performed in many cases by the musicians who commissioned and gave the premiere performances of the works.

“The Glory Tree had remarkable scoring, stratospheric singing and was performed with shamanic authority, her final scream reverberating through the cloisters.” Keith Bruce, The Herald.

The songs of the title work on this disc - The Glory Tree - are arresting settings, in original Anglo-Saxon, from The Dream of the Rood and Judith, treated as the utterances of Shamanic ritual.
Shamanism also provides the inspiration for the solo violin work The Snow Woman written for, and played here by, Natalia Lomeiko.

These works are typical of the fertile soil for musical invention which Cheryl Frances-Hoad finds in literary inspiration. Stories, poems or literary ideas have provided the spark for many works on this disc, performed by exceptionally talented musicians, including Nicholas Daniel (oboe), the Lenvai String Trio, the Kriesler Ensemble, Leonid Gorokhov (ʻcello), the London Mozart Trio, Ensemble na Mara, and others.
The disc is packed with 77mins of music, all newly recorded in the Music Room at Champs Hill.

The Emanuel Ensemble - a flexible chamber group - here present an enticing recital programme for flute, cello and piano, showcasing the undoubted talents of these three acclaimed young players.

The brilliant cellist Louisa Tuck is the youngest Principal of any UK orchestra, and in addition to the Trio repertoire on this disc she also performs Schumann’s Adagio and Allegro for cello and piano, with the sought-after young pianist John Reid. Requiring considerable virtuosity in the concluding portion, and a projection of dreamy Romantic feeling in the opening, this work is of a perfect two-part structure. Anna Stokes, a much in-demand flautist, takes the solo role too, in Borne’s bravura Fantasie Brilliante, composed on themes from Bizet’s Carmen - its high point the increasingly flashy variations on the celebrated Habenera theme. This exuberant CD opens with Piazolla’s La muerte del Angel, and its decisive, thrusting climax sets up the rest of the disc. Gaubert’s souful Piece Romantique (also written for the CD’s central combination of flute, cello and piano) has a lyric charm and an eventide contentment; in stark contrast to the joyous Trio by Nikolai Kapustin. Seemingly improvisatory, this three-movement piece works out its themes thoroughly and fantastically, with walking basses, hypnotic ostinatos, and solo spots’ for each instrument. In turns languidly nostalgic and capricious, this jazz-based Trio is one of the most popular works of Kapustin’s output, and rounds off with an insouciant and irresistible display of animal vitality.

As Louise Farrenc’s work is being rediscovered, it looks as though she may have been the most important female composer of the first half of the 19th century. Her Trio in E minor, performed by the Emanuel Ensemble for this recital, is written in full classical sonata form, showing considerable contrapuntal artistry. The work concludes in effervescent high spirits, bringing proceedings to a close in high good humour.

PHOENIX - Emily Pailthorpe, oboe and English Chamber Orchestra

PHOENIX - Emily Pailthorpe, oboe and English Chamber Orchestra

Subcollection: Chamber Orchestra

Paul Patterson’s Phoenix Concerto gives solo oboist Emily Pailthorpe the character of the mythical Phoenix Firebird itself: mercurial, sensuous, mesmerising and captivating.

Commissioned by David Bowerman and first performed in 2009, this is the world premiere recording. Patterson writes “The fire, passion and power of the Phoenix are very present in the outer movements of this piece, with the last movement filled with mesmerising dance-rhythms. The oboe’s unparalleled ability to recreate the feel of exotic birgsong is showcased in the opening cadenza and central slow movement.”

Alongside this new work is Vaughan Williams’ beloved Concerto in A minor for Oboe and Strings, composed for another great exponent of the oboe, Leon Goossens, in 1944. Although superficially a work of pastoral serenity and bucolic piping for the soloist, there are undercurrents that remind the listener that it was composed in wartime.

The Howells Oboe Sonata is another world premiere, here in a new orchestration by Benjamin Wallfisch for strings with harp, played by Hugh Webb. In its original incarnation (not heard until after the composer’s death in 1982, and with heavily orchestral piano writing) the work presented problems to its dedicatee, again Goosens, who said he had „serious reservations“.

Of this new arrangement, however, Pailthorpe says: “I feel liberated… I can float my sound over the breadth of the ECO strings, and the harp texture is wonderful...”. She adds: “The Howells and the Vaughan Williams, both written in the early 1940’s, arise from the ashes of World War II and, in this sense, they seem fitting to include on this “Phoenix” CD.

Founder member of acclaimed chamber ensemble Conchord, Emily Pailthorpe is a graduate of the Julliard School and the youngest ever winner of the Gillet International Oboe Competition. She made her solo Wigmore debut in 2004 and guests as principal oboe with several leading international orchestras.
