Michael Nyman: Music for Two Pianos - The Zoo Duet

Michael Nyman: Music for Two Pianos - The Zoo Duet
ID: SIGCD506
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Contemporary music

Signum Records is proud to release its first volume of music devoted to one of Britain's best known composers Michael Nyman. The Zoo Duet perform music for two pianos.
Nn one has played a greater role in bridging the divide between the worlds of classical and popular music than Michael Nyman. He has combined Purcell and Mozart, 1950s rock ‘n’ roll, ancient Sumerian quasi-feminist texts, Queens Park Rangers Football Club and innumerable other diverse musical and cultural sources to produce a style of composition which is romantic, eclectic, occasionally chaotic, but uniquely his own.
Like the best classical, jazz or pop music, Nyman’s output does stand up to closer analysis, but the secret of its appeal lies not in the field of academic, but rather in its ability to speak to a large and culturally diverse audience.
Taking a Line for a Second Walk began life in 1986 as an orchestral work from the Houston Ballet. The Water Dances, originally written for Peter Greenaway’s film Making a Splash and appearing here in its five-movement form for the first time, is in part derived from a chord progression taken from a Monteverdi madrigal.
Michael Nyman has demonstrated that it is possible to write progressive and challenging new music without alienating a large part of the classical audience while attracting an even broader rock- and pop-orientated public.

“There’s hardly another composer who would take a more solitary place in the family of Russian musicians” wrote Medtner’s contemporary and music critic Vyacheslav Karatygin.

Medtner was born to a family of intellectuals of German descent who had long before settled in Russia. Even after three decades of emigration, he remained an essentially Russian musician till the end of his days. If Medtner’s music could not boast a great number of followers, it irrepressibly attracted such deep and subtle, though very different, artists as Rachmaninov and Myaskovsky.

Medtner’s music organically combined traditions of German and Russian music. Along with Rachmaninov and Scriabin, Medtner was an outstanding interpreter of his own works and one of those who started a new era of Russian piano music.

According to the prominent musician, pianist and thinker Heinrich Neuhaus, Medtner as a pianist “won himself an unfading glory… I couldn’t help feeling that it wasn’t just a marvelous pianist playing but a great musician, excellent composer, that his thought and ear had a total control of his fingers and his phenomenal virtuosity, and that it was an inspired pianism”.

This second volume of the anthology includes three Medtner’s piano concertos recorded in the 1940s in London (the second and third ones were conducted by Issay Dobrowen, one of the renowned representatives of Russian musical emigration). The set also features one of the most original of the composer’s works - Sonata-Ballade, Op.27.

Medtner:
Piano Concerto No. 1 in C minor, Op. 33
Philharmonia Orchestra, George Weldon
Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 50
Philharmonia Orchestra, Issay Dobrowen
Piano Concerto No. 3 in E minor, Op. 60 'Ballade'
Philharmonia Orchestra, Issay Dobrowen
Sonata-Ballada in F sharp major, Op. 27
