John McLeod: Moments in T ime Red Note Ensemble Aberdeen-born McLeod’s increasingly acclaimed music bears a l l the hal lmarks of exuberant co l our and precisely imagined fantasy that his early associations with Lennox Berkeley and Witold Lutos ł awski would l ead one to expect. Recorded dur i ng the composer’s eightieth birthday year, this landmark collection brings together McLeod’s four my tho l ogic a l ‘songs’ – power fu l dramatic scenes in which instruments are elevated to vo i ce - l i ke expression – and a fu r ther work which c r yst a l l i ses the theme of a s i ngle moment with a l ong expressive ‘shadow’. The extraordinary chamber musicians gathered here, including long-time Delphian ar t i sts S imon Smith ( p i ano) and Rober t I r v i ne (ce l l o), d i sp l ay unequalled v i r tuosi t y and passion on a d i sc which i s sure to confirm Red Note as among the UK’s premier contemporary music ensembles.

Eddie McGuire: Entangled For t unes Red Note Ensemble Eddie McGuire i s one of Scotland ’s greatest l i v i ng composers. A renaissance man, his compositional voice i s i nformed by a broad wealth of cul tu r a l experience and by an unl imi ted melodic c reat i v i t y. I n t h i s i ntensely beautiful and unpretentious music, folk-like tunes appear naturally, taking their place in a world of invention l arge enough to contain minimalist gestures, i ntense romanticism, meditative silence and sudden drama. I n t he second of two d i scs programmed to i n i t i ate thei r new record i ng par tnership with Delphian, Red Note Ensemble br i ng passion and care to th i s music – a token of the regard i n which McGuire i s held by Scot t i sh musicians of all generations. New i n June 2015
