John Cage Number Pieces Box Set

New CD Releases, November 2021

Five new CDs for the winter months. Beautiful music, wonderfully played.

Special offers: You can buy all 5 of the new releases for the price of 4. And see below for details of the launch concert, and special offers on previous discs by Ryoko Akama and Martin Iddon.

Cage Number Pieces

The John Cage Number Pieces box set, with Apartment House playing all of the number pieces for mid-size ensemble from Five to Fourteen, has been extremely well-received and is already close to selling out.


There was a good article in The Guardian here, and an excellent review here:  

“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”.


There’s also been a great in-depth review at Point of Departure here:  “Monumental…the box sheds renewed light on this oft overlooked series. Through their dedication and peerless production values, they have created a singular lens into these pieces”,


another excellent one in Dusted here, plus an equally positive review in The Wire, which you can read here:

“The musicians participating here are outstanding not only on account of their technical refinement, but also their capacity to tune in to the inner life of Cage’s scores and to pick up the vibrations of possibility they transmit….An exciting and important release of music too seldom heard”

Morton Feldman Piano box set

Aside from the Cage Number Pieces box set, our previous box set of Morton Feldman’s piano music played by Philip Thomas remains our best-selling release. It is now in its third pressing, and had a string of great reviews, with just two examples below.


“Everything about this six-hour, five-disc box set radiates the care, attention-to-detail and , yes, love that has been invested in producing it….absolutely essential.  Forget about albums-of-the-week, end of year lists and so forth; Morton Feldman Piano seems destined to be played, discussed and cherished for many years to come. A historic five-star release.”  John Eyles


“Throughout you’re aware of how thoroughly Thomas grasps the architecture of the music, and how deeply this sensitivity is grounded inside an intimate communion with the resonant swells and overtones of Feldman. Again and again I was reminded of Bach playing of the highest order as Thomas’s crystalline clear orientation around line makes the motility between contrapuntal lines dance internally.”  Philip Clark, The Wire









Morton Feldman Piano

Listen to extracts:    Triadic Memories       Intermission 5     

                           Extensions 3    Music for the Lipton film


The box set contains a brilliant essay on playing Feldman’s piano music by Philip Thomas, which you can read here.

Sales to EU countries

New EU customs regulations are affecting some people in the European Union when they buy CDs from the UK. The new rules are being enforced inconsistently, and the situation varies from country to country. In the most severe cases people are being charged extra charges even on small packets from the UK. But this is rare, and in most countries the majority of our packets are getting through without extra costs.

If you live in the European Union and are worried about the possibility of customs charges, you can avoid them by ordering our CDs from our European distributor Soundohm, who stock most of our discs.

You can order our CDs from Soundohm’s website here

at72   Martin Iddon  ‘Pneuma’


Five chamber works which “create a window through which we hear another world. This other world is the essential secret of pneuma—one which can only be perceived in listening, and one which is always at the very threshold of recognition.”   Ian Power

at110x2   Ryoko Akama   ‘places & pages’


Fantastically creative double CD in which Ryoko and a group of Geneva-based musicians interpret her brief text scores.


“Maintains an amazing level of variety and imagination,  endlessly surprising and enthralling.”  Brian Olewnick


Youtube extract 1


Youtube extract 2

at146     Ryoko Akama  ‘Dial 45-21-95’


A series of works in which Ryoko Akama works with pitched material, and with Apartment House, for the first time:  

“I was scared of the recording sessions…The scores were transformed into music more beautifully than I’d ever expected. There was even a moment where I wanted to cry with joy. I was experiencing a power of music through simple melodies.”  Ryoko Akama

Youtube extract 1     Youtube extract 2

at79    ‘next to nothing’   Akama / Duplant / Lash


Three minimal trio pieces, one composed by each musician.

Next to Nothing is both soothing and challenging. It invites the listener to slow down, relax, and patiently accept subtle, simple, musical ideas, which for most of us are in dramatic contrast to our usual fast-paced lives.”  Christopher Mandel


Youtube extract

at179   Martin Iddon - ‘Sapindales’


Four clarinet-based works, beautifully played by Heather Roche, with contributions from Juliet Fraser, Anton Lukoszevieze and James Opstad.  Intricate music with delicate interweaving lines. The title piece combines field recordings made by the composer with wonderful multi-tracked clarinets.


Youtube extract

at183  Andrew McIntosh

‘A moonbeam is just a filtered sunbeam’


Wonderful and haunting extended solo piece by the California-based composer and instrumentalist Andrew McIntosh, combining field recordings with violin, viola, piano and other sounds.

at182  Morton Feldman

‘Piano and String Quartet’


Apartment House once more, here with their exceptional interpretation of Feldman’s celebrated late work. 80 minutes of extraordinary beauty.
