Recent CD Releases
Feldman piano music
In 2019 we are planning to release new recordings of a lot of Morton Feldman’s piano music. To get in the mood, try our Anonymous Zone Feldman challenge.
Listen to six pianists play the same extract from ‘For Bunita Marcus’ and see which version you prefer. You can also try to match the pianist with the extract.
As well as the launch concert at Cafe Oto, August will see the release of the second batch of CDs in the Canadian Composers Series
This highly-acclaimed series was launched in 2017 with five discs by Linda Catlin Smith, Martin Arnold, Isaiah Ceccarelli, Marc Sabat and Chiyoko Szlavnics.
“Another Timbre really has outdone itself with this outstandingly impressive collection of discs.” 5:4
“The release of this Canadian series will undoubtedly come to be viewed as a landmark event.” John Eyles
Compelling music from a new trio of
Cyril Bondi (harmonium),
Pierre-Yves Martel (viola da gamba)
& Christoph Schiller (spinet)
Improvised, but on the basis of a pre-agreed sequence of pitches, allowing the musicians to explore melody in a way that is rare within improvisation.
at124x2 John Cage - Two2
A new recording of one of Cage’s least known number pieces. Philip Thomas and Mark Knoop’s realisation stretches this piece for two pianos to over two hours in length, finding new and unexpected resonances.
“An amazing, revelatory performance…..
A major achievement.” Brian Olewnick
at125 Magnus Granberg
‘Es schwindelt mir, es brennt mein Eingeweide’
An exquisite hour-long ensemble piece played by Magnus Granberg (piano)
