Tim Brady:
Music for Large Ensemble

Tim Brady CD

Two major compositions, from the acclaimed composer and electric guitar virtuoso Tim Brady, receive their premiere recordings on this CD. One is the driving, high-energy Désir: concerto for electric guitar and large chamber ensemble, and the other is the intensely harrowing, yet poignant, Eight Songs about: Symphony #7.

Allan Kozinn writes:

"As a composer, Brady is entirely of his time, which is to say, eclectically rooted in the full range of modern styles, from neo-Romanticism to experimentalism and Minimalism [as well as] art-rock."

Peter Garland:
The Landscape Scrolls

Peter Garland CD

This premiere recording of Peter Garland’s 50-minutepiece The Landscape Scrolls continues his history as a maverick “composer of mesmerizing music” (Kyle Gann). Commissioned by percussionist John Lane, the work depicts the 24-hour day cycle in five movements.

John Luther Adams writes:

“The expressive power of this music comes not from the notes on the page, but from a deeper resonance, from the magical power of sound itself … A set of drums reconnects us with the ground beneath our feet. A few triangles become an enormous carillon, a nocturnal bell tower, a call to prayer in the temple of night. The gentle clanging of tubular bells becomes a morning chant, saluting the sun, greeting the new day. Listening to this music we are grounded again, we are filled with wonder … These are musical landscapes [but also] prayers for the seasons, the hours of night and day, prayers for humanity and for all life on this planet.”
