All the ‘Violin+1’ series of CDs have had excellent reviews, plus there have been rather late reviews of some other recent releases.
I’m terrible at keeping track of reviews, but most that I know of are now on the relevant webpages for each disc.
It’s far harder to get considered reviews of experimental music than it used to be, so thanks to all those who continue to support the music with their pens (or keyboards, more likely).
There will be a new batch of four CDs in October, including at100, which will be an occasion for wild partying. Details of the new discs coming soon.
Then January 2017 will see the first batch of releases in the Canadian composers’ series - a double CD of chamber music by Linda Catlin Smith, and single discs by Martin Arnold and Isaiah Ceccarelli.
The second batch of Canadian releases is scheduled for April 2017 and will include discs by Chiyoko Szlavnics, Marc Sabat and Cassandra Miller.
Performers in the Canadian composers series include the Bozzini Quartet, Apartment House, the Jack Quartet, Philip Thomas and Mira Benjamin, and the Konus Quartett.
All excellent stuff…
After that, who knows, it’s a long way off. But one project that is definitely happening is the first commissioned pieces funded by Another Timbre. Jürg Frey and Magnus Granberg are currently composing substantial new works for Ensemble Grizzana, which will be premiered in 2017. Both composers have started from two pieces by Renaissance composers, but from that common starting point they worked independently and with different compositional methods. So the end results should be unique.
More on that project as it develops, but you can hear the source compositions here:
