Produktbeskrivelse

Edward Higginbottom and his Choir of New College Oxford present the second of three CDs exploring 20th-century choral music, this one concentrating on many of the contemporary British compositions that have figured in their popular New College chapel programmes and delighted many diverse audiences of students, Fellows and visitors alike. The track list reads like a veritable who’s who of contemporary British composers, with two sacred works by James MacMillan leading the way. Julian Anderson, Jonathan Dove, Tarik O’Regan, Robin Holloway and Judith Weir are among the others who contribute to a glorious disc that displays the Choir’s distinguishing versatility.

Also available are Poulenc and his French Contemporaries (AV 2084), and Copland and his American Contemporaries (AV 2086).

“…a rich, well chosen selection of works that confirm just how vigorous and robust the British tradition remains, and what safe hands that tradition is in when composers of this calibre are willing to continue it with such understanding and respect for the strengths and needs of the church choir.” Gramophone

“There are few boy choristers who can phrase as expressively as Edward Higginbottom’s firm rich-toned altos ... a dignified, darkly eloquent performance.” BBC Music Magazine

Mazurka - Remaking Chopin - Asheim, Nils Henrik (piano) / Gjertruds Sigøynerorkester

Nils Henrik Asheim har i dette prosjektet tatt for seg Frèdéric Chopin's Mazurkaer og laget en syklus med re-interpretasjoner i samarbeid med Gjertruds sigøynerorkester. "Uvisst av hvilken grunn, kanskje jeg var i en melankolsk periode, dukket Chopin-mazurkaene opp på mitt piano, dag etter dag gjennom ett år. Etter hvert som den ble spilt om og om igjen, begynte musikken å røre på seg. Små detaljer forstørret seg, rev seg løs og dannet sin egen musikk."
