Sales to EU countries

New customs regulations are being enforced in some EU countries, meaning that some CD orders from the UK are incurring extra charges.  The majority of our packets are getting through ok without extra customs charges, but this isn’t guaranteed. If you live in the European Union and are worried about possible customs charges, you can avoid them by ordering our CDs from our European distributor Soundohm, who stock most of our discs.

           ‘The Pankow-Park Sessions, Vol.1’

In his mid-80’s veteran composer Ernstalbrecht Stiebler started improvising, playing in a domestic setting with fellow-Berliner Tilman Kanitz.  The results are totally unexpected. Six extraordinary duos for piano and cello.

Beautifully played by Trio Amos with Klaus Lang

at192  Katelyn Clark & Isaiah Ceccarelli

‘Landmarks’ presents eight collaborative tracks for organ and percussion by the Canadian duo of early-music specialist Clark and composer-improviser Ceccarelli. They have worked together for over a decade, and here produce a unique music that could be described as quietly monumental.

New Releases, May 2022

A critic who has already heard these five new CDs emailed back ‘What a great batch!’ And it is. Unusual too. There’s a lot of engagement with early music, a lot of organ (!), and a lot of music that was produced collaboratively rather than being the product of a single creator. All excellent stuff - and as usual, you can have all five new discs for the price of four. Plus there are offers on 7 previous releases involving some of the musicians in this batch (£5 per single disc, £10 for the double, see below).

at186 Gabriel Paiuk  ‘Adjacent Sound’

Paiuk writes music that creates its own uncanny soundworld. The title of the first piece, ‘The Construction of an Imaginary Acoustic Space’, speaks to the concerns of a distinctive, individual voice in new music.

     ‘How Lonely Sits the City?’

Another superlative, haunting work by Magnus  Granberg and his group Skogen. Recorded during the Covid pandemic, its mood of strange, fragile melancholy fittingly reflects that disconcerting year.
