Apartment House residency at Cafe Oto
Apartment House have a 3-day residency at London’s Cafe Oto from Monday 5th to Wednesday 7th September, where they’ll be playing pieces from their 5 new Another Timbre CDs, as well as exploring a lot of other strange and surprising stuff - including Pauline Oliveros, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Terry Riley, Georgia Rodgers, Ryoko Akama and a couple of composers who you probably haven’t not heard of.
Click the dates below for details of each evening’s programme + tickets:
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.
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.
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
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 extraordinary duos for piano and cello.
Other recent releases
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.
at187 Eva-Maria Houben
‘together on the way’
Houben joins forces with the GBSR duo (Siwan Rhys and George Barton) to produce a brooding and compelling piece for pipe organ, piano and percussion. A successful and highly acclaimed release.
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.
at185 Mark Ellestad ‘Discreet Angel’
The re-discovery of a Canadian composer who stopped writing music in the mid-90’s. Three pieces of unique and beautiful music, with interpretations by Apartment House, Cristian Alvear, and the composer himself.
at184 Kunsu Shim ‘LUFT.INNERES’
Kunsu Shim’s shimmering, 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.
at183 Andrew McIntosh
‘A moonbeam is just a filtered sunbeam’
Great, haunting extended solo piece by the California-based composer / instrumentalist Andrew McIntosh, featurng field recordings with violin, viola, piano and other sounds.
Morton Feldman Piano box set
at144x5 Morton Feldman Piano
Our best-selling release ever, the beautiful 5-CD box set of Morton Feldman’s music for solo piano.
Pianist Philip Thomas creates wonderful interpretations that have received an overwhelming critical response.
