Toru Takemitsu: Quotation of Dream (20/21 series) - London Sinfonietta / Oliver Knussen
Toru Takemitsu, Oliver Knussen, ...

Deutsche Grammophon, 1999

Sometimes, even while you are listening, it can be very difficult to understand how Takemitsu created such exquisitely beautiful music using so much dissonance. As the brief Day Signal opens the disc, for example, you're more likely to think of the glory of sunrise than of the discords. And Quotation of Dream , which quotes freely from Debussy's La Mer , is nearly as beautiful as its source. Rather than waste time figuring out how ...


Gregorian Chant
Gregorian Chant, Anonymous

Decca, 1999

Decades before the "chant" phenomenon shook the classical charts, the London Choir of the Carmelite Priory released this solemn disc of prayers and hymns. The 1961 sonics add a slight recording hiss to the CD, but the performances are still memorable and every bit as impressive as the more famous Benedictine monk recording. As part of the Penguin Classics series of music, liner notes by author Kathleen Norris ( Amazing Grace: A Vocabulary of ...


Polychoral Splendour
Schutz, Gabrieli

Audite, 2012

To visit the great Venetian cathedrals in the 17th century was to bow deeply to the polychoral or 'cori spezzati' style that reigned there, pioneered by Giovanni Gabrieli. The young Heinrich Schutz was no exception. Unable to resist the sparkling sounds arising from polychoral writing and antiphonal placement, Schutz carried the style back to his native Germany. Capella Murensis and Les Cornets Noirs here present with absolute fidelity works by ...

Henry Brant: Music for Massed Flutes
Henry Brant, Robert Aitken, ...

New World Records, 2006

The long and illustrious career of American composer Henry Brant (born 1913) can be framed with the music he has written for the flute. The Pulitzer Prize–winning composer’s three epic works for multiple flutes do not fit into any standard category of instrumentation or form; rather, they span the creative life of a man who for all of his life has been referred to as a “maverick,” a “pioneer,” an “experimentalist,” and, since the ...
