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.

Colin Matthews: Chamber works (NMC D149 - Ancora Series)
Oboe Quartet No.1, String Quartet No.2,
Divertimento for Double String Quartet, Five Concertinos for Wind Quintet, Triptych

‘[Colin Matthews is] the Isambard Kingdom Brunel of contemporary music: master of great time machines, steamy with energy derived from pulse and from massive,
surging harmony, and openly displaying their structural engineering, all finished with a craftsman's care.' Paul Griffiths

Most of the works on this disc were originally available on vinyl only; the String Quartet No.2, performed by the Brindisi Quartet, has never been released.

J.S. BACH - The Art of the Fugue BWV 1080 - Quartetto Bernini

J.S. BACH - The Art of the Fugue BWV 1080 - Quartetto Bernini
ID: ARNR0301
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Quartet

Classical, Bach, String Quartet

Digipack with Booklet 16 pagine

With this new edition of "The Art of the Fugue", the last instrumental masterwork of Bach, the Quartetto Bernini is proposing for the first time the filological execution of Bernini's manuscript.
Precious and unique, this recording offers to the listener a new clarity, compared with the existing numerous versions, based on the first edition of print.

"The Art of the Fugue" is infact a complex work, where the inventive counterpoint of Bach is taken to the limit and in this edition Quartetto Bernini offers a particular lecture, next to the instrumental praxis of that epoche, also through the use of a splendid quartet of italian instuments, dated 16th/17th century.
