TRAJECTORIES - music by David Gorton - KREUTZER QUARTET - NEIL HEYDE (cello) - PETER SHEPPARD SKÆRVED (violin)  RODERICK CHADWICK (piano)
ID: MSVCD92104
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Cello

David Gorton is a very highly respected British composer whose music is firmly modernist - very difficult to play, but which is also very approachable and accessible. Here Neil Heyde provides a stunning performance of the Cello Sonata and a second version, given a very different interpretation in a live recital. We have the two tiny but intense Caprices for solo violin, a fine work for Piano Trio and the String Quartet Trajectories, a modern model for that genre. All are first recordings, produced and supervised by the composer.

The music of David Gorton first began to receive attention in 2001 when he was awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society Composition Prize while still a student. The subsequent commission for the London Sinfonietta, Oblique Prayers, outlined a distinctive and unique sound-world described by one commentator as combining “an acute imagination for delicate timbral invention with a prodigious command of the unfolding of this half-hour ritual drama” (The Independent).
Gorton studied composition with Harrison Birtwistle and Simon Bainbridge. His music can be described as technically demanding for the performers, and for the listener it is complex and challenging - one commentator remarked that it is music in a constant state of restless evolution.
As a soloist and chamber musician Neil Heyde has appeared throughout Europe, and in the USA and Australia. Since the mid 90s he has been the cellist of the Kreutzer Quartet and he now heads the postgraduate programmes at the Royal Academy of Music, where his work focuses on the relationships between performance, composition and analysis. He has commissioned and premiered many solo and chamber pieces and is also dedicated to performing and recording neglected areas of the repertoire.

NORTHERN LIGHTS - John Casken - robert Saxton - Judith Weir - KREUTZER QUARTET

NORTHERN LIGHTS - John Casken - robert Saxton - Judith Weir - KREUTZER QUARTET
ID: MSV28507
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: String instruments

The three composers featured on this CD are in themselves leading lights of the contemporary music scene in the UK, and their works (of which these are first recordings) very fine examples of the modern string quartet, all extremely accessible.

tracks: John Casken: String Quartet no. 2
Judith Weir: String Quartet
Robert Saxton: Songs, Dances and Ellipses

The Kreutzer Quartet has forged an enviable reputation as one of the Europe’s most dynamic and innovative string quartets. The ‘Independent’ newspaper summed up their playing as ‘Passion, Grace and Steel…’.
They are the dedicatees of numerous works, and over many years forged creative partnerships with composers including Sir Michael Tippett, David Matthews, Michael Finnissy, Judith Weir, and Haflidi Hallgrimsson. They have a particularly strong relationship to a cross-section of leading American composers, having collaborated intensively with the great George Rochberg in the last few years of his life, as long as working closely with figures as Elliott Schwartz, and the prolific symphonist Gloria Coates.
As recording artists they have won critical acclaim for their discs on the Naxos, Metier, and Chandos labels. Their work in collaboration with art galleries has garnered much attention, and large audiences, particularly their annual residency at the Tate Gallery, St Ives. In 2008 they appeared at several Festivals including the Venice Biennale, and the Montpelier Festival. They are ‘Artists in association’ at York University. The performers on this CD are Peter Sheppard Skærved (violin), Gordon MacKay (violin), Bridget Carey (viola), and Neil Heyde (cello).
Of the works presented here there are no other recordings of the Casken and Saxton pieces, and at the recording of these, the composers were present, so it can be assumed they are precisely what the composers actually envisaged when writing the works.

The Kreutzer Quartet includes:

Peter Sheppard Skærved (Violin)
Mihailo Trandafilovski and previously Gordon MacKay (Violin)
Morgan Goff and previously Bridget Carey (Viola)

"ON CHOSEN HILL" - Chamber Music by Herbert Howells - Lyric Quartet - Andrew West, piano - Michael Collins, clarinet

"ON CHOSEN HILL" - Chamber Music by Herbert Howells - Lyric Quartet - Andrew West, piano - Michael Collins, clarinet
ID: MSVCD92003
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano and Clarinet

One of Metier's first issues, and re-issued by demand, this CD is valuable to lovers of English music because Howells' music is still under-rated and ignored. The very fine musicians help to make this an essential recording.

CATALAN STRING QUARTETS - KREUTZER QUARTET

CATALAN STRING QUARTETS - KREUTZER QUARTET
ID: MSVCD92026
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: String instruments

While the string quartet is most usually associated with the Germanic traditions, many fine quartets have emanated from a variety of sources in more recent times, and the Catalan area is such. The four quartets recorded here are important becuase they offer a picture of quartet writing outside the main European canon; the four composers are of the generation after the great Roberto Gerhard, who left Spain for Britain in 1939 but whose roots in Catalan music created the cornerstone for this new school of expression.
