    Grace Williams: Chamber Music

    £7.19 (£7.99)
    *10% off for a limited time only

    Grace Williams is widely considered to be Wales’ foremost female composer. She studied with Vaughan Williams at the Royal College of Music and Egon Wellesz in Vienna, composing in many genres throughout her life. Her chamber music, recorded here for the first time, spans 40 years. This release features all world premiere recordings, as works by Welsh composer Grace Williams are rarely recorded.

    Aaron Copland

    Billy the Kid | Grohg

    £7.99
    Aaron Copland did as much as anyone in establishing American concert music on the world stage, and his ballet scores proved to be among his most important and influential works. Grohg is the most ambitious example of his Parisian years, a precociously brilliant one-act ballet scored for full orchestra, inspired by the silent expressionist film Nosferatu. The first example of Copland’s new ‘Americanized’ music of the 1930s was Billy the Kid, based on the life of the 19th century outlaw and heard here in its full version. This was the first fully fledged American ballet in style and content: brassy, syncopated, filmic and richly folk-flavoured.

    Claudio Monteverdi

    Madrigals Book 9

    £7.99
    Monteverdi’s Ninth Book of Madrigals, published posthumously, and the 1632 Scherzi musicali (‘Musical Jokes’) are thematically linked by the recurring theme of war for the sake of love. Prefaced with a Sinfonia by Biagio Marini and featuring one of Monteverdi’s towering masterpieces, Zefiro torna, the Ninth Book comprises thevfew remaining late madrigals, a number of canzonette, as well as works with the same titles and verses from the earlier Eighth Book (available on 8.573755-58), here performed in completely different musical settings. Recorded complete, and in historically informed fashion, this is the final volume in this series.

    Johann Sebastian Bach

    St Matthew Passion

    £19.99
    Johann Sebastian Bach’s St Matthew Passion is widely recognised as one of the greatest masterpieces in Western sacred music. With its double orchestra and chorus this is a work of enormous proportions in every sense, and Bach was extremely resourceful in treading a fine line between creating the almost operatic spectacle valued by the secular authorities in Leipzig, and the elevated religious atmosphere sought by the clergy.

    Wolfgang Rihm

    Gesunge Zeit

    £7.99
    Wolfgang Rihm, one of the foremost contemporary composers, has created a powerful body of music for the violin. Gesungene Zeit is one his most performed works, and it demonstrates why Rihm is so admired: music that begins and ends in ethereal lines while embracing agitation and threnody alike. The beautifully transparent and sensuous Lichtes Spiel is ‘light, but not lightweight’ in the composer’s words, and COLL’ARCO takes the soloist to the extremes of virtuosity in his largest concertante work for the violin, teeming with reminiscences, intricacy and drama. Volume 1 can be heard on 8.573812.
