This programme features concert music by composers who also wrote film scores for Hollywood. While this was just one string to the considerable bows of Gershwin and Copland, Bernard Herrmann and Franz Waxman are best known for their music for Hitchcock films (Vertigo, North by Northwest, Marnie and Psycho for Herrmann; and Rebecca and The Paradine Case for Waxman). Centre stage is Gershwin’s Song-book, arranged by the composer for solo piano in order to present the songs ‘as George Gershwin plays them himself’.

Liza Lim's (b. 1966) compositional practice reflects on Asian ritual cultures, Australian Indigenous aesthetics, weaving and knots as a metaphorical ‘technology for thinking’, ecologies of collaboration, and distributed creativities. ...Alternative pop music has been as important a source of inspiration for Jon Øivind Ness (b. 1968) as the classical canon, though still he writes almost exclusively for acoustic classical ensembles.

This young guitarists debut album is the perfect introduction to his artistry, showcasing as it does four leading 20th-century composers of guitar music Antonio José Palacios, Alberto Ginastera, Antonio Lauro and Julio Gentil Montaña composers who in turn represent four different countries and four styles of music that differ widely both aesthetically and in terms of the traditions from which they spring. Among the most promising Spanish composers of his generation, Antonio José was acclaimed by Ravel and counted Lorca and Dali among his associates, but like Lorca, he was executed by a Falangist firing squad during the Spanish Civil War.

Those who follow American contemporary music even casually may have noticed that composer Jennifer Higdon has been one of very few to thread the needle, appealing equally to audiences and the professional peers who control fellowship purse strings and decide on awards like the Pulitzer Prize, which Higdon won in 2010. Part of Higdon's appeal is her colorful orchestration, but this collection of chamber works, recorded during Higdon's residence at the University of Wyoming in 2010 and 2011, does not fail to demonstrate her talents.
