Image Moments of Memory II
“I do not write new music. My music is a response to and an echo of what already exists.” These words are particularly relevant to works such as the Two Dialogues with epilogue that engage hauntingly with Schubert and Wagner, and the evocative Moments of Memory – 2 that alludes to Chopin and yearns for an unattainable past.

Image Bianca e Falliero (3 CD)
Bianca e Falliero was commissioned by La Scala, Milan, for its prestigious Carnival season of 1819-20, enjoying a run of no fewer than 39 performances. Rossini responded with a score the virtuosity and expressivity of which outdid even his Neapolitan works. Prevailing tastes at La Scala meant that ensembles predominated over arias but behind the conventional dictates Rossini lavished the utmost care on his work, fashioning an opera full of dramatic coloratura and powerful theatrical craft and notable for its rich and often surprising harmony.

Image Sister Carrie
Described by Opera News as ‘an important addition to the American operatic canon’, Sister Carrie takes as its themes the lure of money and social standing. Aldridge’s inventive score is richly melodic and unapologetically tonal. His Elmer Gantry [Naxos 8.669032-33] was a two-time GRAMMY® Award-winner.

This second volume of violin sonatas displays the range of Ries’ creative gifts as a composer, skilfully synthesising the clarity and discipline of Mozart’s Viennese Classical style with the inventiveness and freedom of the new Romanticism developing in the early 19th century.

"Camillo Togni was one of the most representative figures of 20th-century Italian music. He was inspired to write numerous works for his friend the acclaimed flautist Roberto Fabbriciani, a musician as close as any to this composer’s complex, mysterious and deeply poetic musical language. Includes world premiere recordings."

Image Suite Florentine - Complete Works for Woodwind
Charles Widor’s musical life covered around 75 years of French cultural history. His organ symphonies helped to blow spectacular new life into an instrument that had become sorely neglected, and it was in salons such as that of the organ builder Cavaille-Coll that his chamber music was first welcomed with enthusiasm. Widor went on to work with leading players of his day, composing audition showpieces such as the Introduction et Rondo, the recently rediscovered and popular Serenade with its rich harmonium sonorities, and the Suite, Op. 34 that far transcends the salon genre in its character and range.

"Restored by Mayr expert Frans Hauk from two extant manuscript versions and heard here in its world premiere recording, Simon Mayr’s Stabat mater in F minor was singled out by a contemporary biographer 'for its marvellous effect' and 'heavenly beauty. Mayr himself frequently returned to this work, recycling one of its movements in his great Requiem [8.573419-20]. "

Blancafort’s complete piano music can be heard on 8.557332-35 and 8.572220.

"All the works on this ninth volume were composed when Busoni was between the ages of eleven and fifteen. Full of charm and wit, they reveal his precocious absorption of earlier models – principally Bach, Mozart, Weber and Schumann – as well as exceptional technical finesse."

Image A House for Mr Biswas (18 CD)
‘In this hapless state I looked myself over and saw that I was now no bird, but an ass...’ In this ancient picaresque adventure, Lucius, an insatiably curious young man, finds himself transformed into a donkey after his fascination with black magic and witchcraft goes awry. While trapped in his new body, he becomes the property of thieves, farmers, cooks, soldiers and priests, and observes the hypocrisy and ineptitude of Imperial Roman society. The Golden Ass is considered the only novel to survive the Roman period, and the earliest novel to survive complete in the Western literary tradition. It is brimming with slapstick humour and sexual escapades, and foreshadows later works by Boccaccio, Rabelais, Cervantes and Chaucer, upon whom it was a direct influence.

Image The Hearing Trumpet (6 CD)
Phineas Finn, a handsome young man of 23, comes to England to make his fortune in parliamentary politics. But despite all his aspirations, Finn is haunted by ethical questions as his personal convictions conflict with his duty towards his party. Loyalty versus honour, love versus money, and privacy versus prominence: our eponymous hero faces a variety of dilemmas as he navigates his way through the House of Commons. The second installment of Trollope’s celebrated Palliser series, Phineas Finn is a delightful and humorous look at the complexity of human relationships and the politics surrounding the Second Reform Bill of the 1860s.
