at189  ‘The Pankow-Park Sessions’ Ernstalbrecht Stiebler & Tilman Kanitz


In his mid-80’s veteran composer Ernstalbrecht Stiebler started improvising, with fellow-Berliner Tilman Kanitz.  The results are totally unexpected. Six extraordinary duos for piano and cello.

at188   Magnus Granberg

     ‘How Lonely Sits the City?’


Another superlative, haunting work by Magnus  Granberg and his group Skogen. Recorded during the Covid pandemic, its mood of strange, fragile melancholy fittingly reflects that disconcerting year.

at178x4   John Cage  ‘Number Pieces’


Already in its second pressing, the 4-CD box set of Apartment House playing Cage’s number pieces was top of The Wire’s year list for modern composition, and also #4 in The Guardian’s best classical releases for 2021.

“Apartment House’s performances are wonderfully committed - every note is there, you sense, for a reason - and reveal the strange beauty in these works….The whole set is a revelation”.  (The Guardian)
