The second release in Orange Mountain Music's 'Concerto Project' series features two world premiere recordings of works by Philip Glass, performed by the Seattle-based Northwest Chamber Orchestra under Ralf Gothóni (well-known to UK audiences as Principal Conductor of the English Chamber Orchestra since 2000). Pianist Paul Barnes performs Piano Concerto No2, After Lewis and Clark written to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the explorers' journey across the American continent. A fortuitous meeting between Barnes and Glass on an airplane in 1995 eventually led to this concerto, but it was only composed after Orange Mountain Music's acclaimed 2003 release of the pianist's transcriptions of Glass operas 'The Orphee Suite'.

Gerhard completed his unnumbered Symphony "Homanaje a Pedrell" twelve years before his Symphony No 1 (1952-3). Its genesis may have been a long drawn-out affair, the opening movement suggesting that is did not begin as a symphony. Perhaps as early as 1922, the year of Felipe Pedrell’s death, Gerhard began to contemplate this tribute to his revered teacher with whom he studied from 1915 to 1920. The tribute is based on ……

The main instrument on this recording, a double manual harpsichord built in 2011 by Colin Booth, is derived from a single manual instrument by the Hamburg builder, Johann Christoph Fleischer and is dated 1710. The original is housed in the Musikinstrumenten-Museum in Berlin. There are two eight-foot registers strung in iron and red brass, a four-foot stop and a harp or buff stop. The temperament is my own modification of Neidhardt and the pitch is 415hz. The instrument used for the Toccata in D major, also by Colin Booth, is a copy of a 17th century single manual Italian harpsichord with two eight foot registers. Pitch A=440hz, tuned to Werkmeister III.

The 24 Inventions for harpsichord by the British composer Stephen Dodgson (1924-2013) were composed over a period of some forty years. Dodgson knew of course the works of the reinventers of the harpsichord in the 20th century, including Falla, Poulenc, Martin, Martinů, Henze or Stravinski (in his Rake 's Progress), and then witnessed the decline of the enthusiasm of new composers for the " Instrument - too linked to a certain neoclassicism that had lived? The first volume of Dodgson's Inventions, published in 1955, was designed for the modern harpsichord, heavy machines with a metal frame, a mechanism closer to that of the piano, a very peculiar sound.

Bela Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra, one of his greatest works, was written in the United States after the composer was forced to flee Hungary during World War II. It is not only a brilliant display vehicle for each instrumental section but a work of considerable structural ingenuity that unites classical forms and sonorities with the pungency of folk rhythms and harmonies. Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta explores darker moods through a score of marvelously poised symmetry. This release follows Marin Alsop's 'riveting' (Gramophone) Baltimore Symphony recordings of Dvorak's symphonies.

Markus Reuter, composer and touch guitarist with Tony Levin's Stick Men group, releases his first symphonic composition, Todmorden 513. This piece - a re-orchestration of an electronic work recorded by the Colorado Chamber Orchestra - creates an infinitely layered, kaleidoscopic drive, pulling the listener ever more into the eye of a 60 minute harmonic storm.
