February releases

One of the good things about having a successful release like the John Cage Number Pieces box set is that it enables us to focus on the work of lesser-known composers, whose work may be less celebrated, but is just as worthy of attention. Five CDs by composers, none of whom are stars, but whose music is beautiful and should be better known.

And finally our best-selling release ever, the beautiful  5-CD box set with Philip Thomas playing Morton Feldman’s music for solo piano.


Wonderful interpretations that have received an overwhelming critical response.

Recommendations from the catalogue

We’re sometimes asked to recommend discs from the back catalogue.

As the February releases focus on little-known composers, here are four CDs we have released by other musicians who are not very famous but which we think are well worth your time

Finally, discs which are selling out

We are running low on CD copies of several of our releases. There are ten or less copies of the following four (click on the covers for more information):

at185   Mark Ellestad


3 pieces by the little-known Canadian composer Mark Ellestad, a contemporary of Martin Arnold and Linda Catlin Smith, but who stopped composing in the mid-90’s. His unique and beautiful music is now being rediscovered, with new interpretations by Apartment House and guitarist Cristian Alvear.

at184    Kunsu Shim


Kunsu Shim is a Korean composer living in Germany. His soft, whispering music has quietly built up a devoted following. ‘LUFT.INNERES’ contains four chamber works for strings, wonderfully played by the Luna Quartet, along with 6 short pieces written for Kunsu by composer friends.

at187   Eva-Maria Houben


Eva-Maria Houben joins forces here with the much-praised GBSR duo (Siwan Rhys and George Barton) to produce a brooding and compelling 67-minute piece for pipe organ, piano and percussion. Recorded at the recent Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival in November 2021.

at188   Magnus Granberg


No stranger to Another Timbre, Magnus Granberg and his group Skogen continue to produce distinctive, haunting music of the highest quality. ‘How Lonely Sits the City?’ was recorded during the Covid pandemic last year, and its mood of fragile, anxious melancholy is a fitting testament to that strange and worrying year.

at186   Gabriel Paiuk


An Argentine composer, now living in Europe, Gabriel Paiuk writes music that creates its own strange soundworld in an uncanny and disconcerting way. The title of the first piece, ‘The Construction of an Imaginary Acoustic Space’, speaks for all 4 works on the CD. A distinctive and individual voice in today’s music.

at178x4   John Cage  ‘Number Pieces’


Top of The Wire’s year list for modern composition, the 4-CD box set of Apartment House playing Cage’s Number Pieces was also #4 in The Guardian’s best classical releases for 2021.


Exquisite music, fantastically played.  “Apartment House’s performances are wonderfully committed - every note is there, you sense, for a reason - and reveal the strange beauty in these works….The whole set is a revelation”.

at171  Josten Myburgh

        ‘Sculthorpe Studies’

Breathtaking music combining field recordings from Western Australia with gentle tones from a six-piece ensemble led by the composer.


Youtube extract

at141   Federico Pozzer

           ‘Breaths’


Three compositions by the young Italian composer using breathing patterns to determine when the musicians should play.

Beautiful pieces.

at127    Alex Jang

  ‘momentary encounters’


Apartment House play four pieces by the young Canadian composer whose music is equally delicate, mysterious and unexpected.

Highly recommended
