September New Release Information from Divine Art/Metier Records
MSV28522 “Pipings and Bowings” – Lyrical English Chamber Music
As a sequel to MSV28520 (Music by Veale and Crawford) here we have a lovely disc of lyrical, pastoral and unashamedly traditional music by Michael Hurd, Robin Milford and Richard Blackford, for recorder, violin and piano and string quartet. Performed by John Turner (recorder), Richard Howarth (violin), Peter Lawson (piano) and the Manchester Chamber Ensemble.
DDA25101 “Delicias” – Spanish Delights for Piano Duo
It is interesting that of the nine composers featured in this recital four had no Spanish roots. The “exotic” nature of Spanish music – especially that of Andalusia in the south with its Moorish history and Gypsy culture – has irresistibly drawn non-Spanish composers. This disc, like the majority of recordings from Goldstone & Clemmow features numerous pieces which are new to the repertoire.

DDA25090 “Rainlight” – Evocations of water for solo piano
Pianist Jeremy Eskenazi is a true rising star with a glittering career already. His first CD for Divine Art features music relating to water – from the gentle (Debussy) to the ferocious (Beethoven), with works by Chopin and Liszt, and several new pieces by leading British-Australian composer Alicia Grant.

DDV24155 Piano Music of Erik Chisholm Volume 7
This is the seventh and final volume in the series of Chisholm’s solo piano music from Murray McLachlan. The first four volumes (DDV24131-4) formed the basis of a recent feature on BBC Radio Scotland studying the piano music of Erik Chisholm, and narrated by Murray McLachlan. These performances have been hailed by one critic as one of the musical discoveries and revelations of the Twenty-First century. Volume 5 (DDV24140) was released in 2009 and Volume 6 (DDV 24149) in 2010.
As usual, just let me know which samples you would like and I’ll mail on a first come, first served basis.
