Recent Press Profiles of Another Timbre
Bandcamp Daily recently published an excellent article by Peter Margasak about the relationship between Another Timbre and Apartment House, which you can read here
And Bandcamp Daily also featured a very nice profile of the label by Hugh Morris: The Meticulous Curation of Another Timbre
Also, a year or so ago there was also a good piece about the label in the music journal Tempo, which you can read here
at199 Evan Johnson - L’art de toucher
First, long over-due, Another Timbre disc or the US composer Evan Johnson. Five works from his unique, whispering soundworld. Three pieces in the ‘L’art de toucher le clavecin’ series, with ‘thaes ofereode’ for cello and voice, and ‘Plan and section of the same reservoir’ played by Trio Accanto.
at200 Jürg Frey ‘Borderland Melodies’
Three wonderful recent compositions by acclaimed Swiss composer Jürg Frey - ‘Movement, Ground, Fragility’, ‘L’état de simplicité’ and ‘Borderland Melodies’. All beautifully played by Apartment House

An extraordinary 50-minute piece for solo violin by Bryn Harrison, played with tireless virtuosity by Sarah Saviet

Apartment House perform a set of five evocative and enigmatic chamber pieces by Leeds-based Martin Iddon, whose last CD ‘Sapindales’ sold out earlier this year.

at193 John Tilbury plays Terry Riley
Archive recordings from 30+ years ago of John Tilbury playing Terry Riley’s two ‘Keyboard Studies’ and ‘Dorian Reeds’. Essential.
at191 Johnny Chang & Keir GoGwilt
‘hope lies fallow’ contains six pieces developed by Johnny and Keir from music by Hildegard van Bingen and Orlando de Lassus. Stunningly beautiful.
Three violin duets, + three tracks for violins and the voice of Celeste Oram.
at190 Klaus Lang - ‘Tehran Dust’
Three chamber pieces by Austrian composer Klaus Lang, plus two arrangements by Klaus of early music by Johannes Ockeghem and Pierre de la Rue.
Beautifully played by Trio Amos & Klaus Lang
at192 Katelyn Clark & Isaiah Ceccarelli
Eight collaborative tracks for organ and percussion by the Canadian duo, who have worked together for over a decade, and here produce a unique music that could be described as quietly monumental.
at189 ‘The Pankow-Park Sessions’ Ernstalbrecht Stiebler & Tilman Kanitz
In his mid-80’s veteran composer Ernstalbrecht Stiebler started improvising, with fellow-Berliner Tilman Kanitz. The results are totally unexpected. Six duos for piano & cello.
at188 Magnus Granberg
‘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.
Another Timbre reaches 200 releases, with a batch of four excellent CDs.
A first release on the label for Evan Johnson, third discs from Bryn Harrison and Martin Iddon, and at200 itself is an absolute peach of a CD by Jürg Frey.
