Description

Fidelio Trio - Michael Nyman Piano Trios 1992-2010

Piano Trios 1992-2010 includes the World premiere recordings of Poczatek and The Photography of Chance

Presented in a 6 panel digipack with an accompanying 12 page booklet containing extensive notes written by Michael Nyman

Poczatek contains five movements derived from the score to the film of the same name including selected extracts from classic Polish feature and documentary films of the 50s, 60s and 70s.

The Photography of Chance refers to the re-seeing of industrial reality in early Soviet photography. Aleksandr Rodchenko drew attention to the new type of photographer as someone who photographs ‘facts’ and who is able, through photography, to fight against ‘looking like art’ with high quality examples, and to do this you have to experiment, going as far as the ‘easelisation’ of the photographic art.

The work is dedicated to the memory of John Peel, the British radio disc jockey who died during the final stages of its composition.

Yellow Beach piano trio is a transfigured version of 'Come Unto These Yellow Sands'.

The title Time Will Pronounce is taken from the last lines of Joseph Brodsky’s poem Bosnia Tune which deals with the horror of the unnecessary unacceptable daily deaths in Bosnia during the 1992 (and still in 1993): “Time, whose sharp blood-thirsty quill parts the killed from those who kill, will pronounce the latter tribe as your type”.

Reviews

"insistent motivic reiterations leavened with lyricism and compassion, inspired by war, industrial archaeology and birdlife and given fine performances” BBC Music Magazine
