Product Description

CD Description

Affirming Michael Nyman's status as an innovator in orchestral music, these three concertos demonstrate a bold re-interpretation of musical traditions. Illustrating Nyman's inventive approach to timbre in the Double Concerto for Saxophone, Cello and Orchestra, and including the virtuosic Concerto for Harpsichord and Strings, this collection concludes with the Concerto for Trombone and Orchestra, a dramatic and tumultuous conflict between instruments.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nyman Concertos 21 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are certain people who seem to be able to talk incessantly without pausing for breath. Flick a switch and they run like a tap, flick it again and they suddenly stop, almost in mid-sentence. The musical equivalent of this phenomenon is Michael Nyman. Best-known for his film scores, Nyman purports to be able to turn his hand to classical forms such as string quartets and concertos. But there seems to me to be all the difference between classical composers such as Alwyn and Arnold who also compose film music - usually to earn a crust - and film composers who try their hand at classical works. In the former case there is a difference in sound and tenor between the "serious", often abstract works, and film scores which of necessity must be programmatic. In the latter case, however, there is often little detectable difference between the composer's film scores and the so-called "serious" compositions. This EMI re-issue of three of Nyman's concertos certainly proves this to be the case where he is concerned. The same welter of ceaseless sound and rhythm is as characteristic of these as of his film music. True, the Nyman sound is distinctive, and attractive to some - including me, in small doses. The problem is that concertos do not usually come in small doses.

The three concertos here - for saxophone and cello (perhaps a unique double), for harpsichord and strings, and for trombone and orchestra (another rarity) -all follow a similar pattern. There are no traditional movements, but sections marked by changes of key and tempo (the banding on the disc was done according to Nyman's wishes). These changes can be quite subtle, and for the most part the music is fast, loud and noisy.
