Artist: Yannis Kyriakides
Title: Antichamber
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

A Double CD collection of 10 pieces of electroacoustic chamber music by Yannis Kyriakides composed over the last ten years. 'It offers a view of a world that is rich both musically and conceptually. For listeners coming new to Kyriakides's music the experience of listening to the pieces grouped together in this way is like exploring an unknown city by drawing a straight line on a map and walking strictly where the line leads; in the process we may miss some important landmarks (Kyriakides's large-scale music-theatre and multimedia works, for example, not represented in this collection), but we get a feel for the "grain" of the territory, which may ultimately provide a special kind of insight..These compositions are small-scale in terms of the number of performers required, but large and imposing in sonority, idea, and emotional intensity. For want of a better term we could call them chamber music: the chamber music of a new century.' (Bob Gilmore) artist performing on the CD include: Anne La Berge, Marco Blaauw, Stefanie Liedkte, Ensemble Intégrales, Mary Oliver, Rozemarie Heggen, Anna McMichael, Wiek Hijmans, Ensemble MAE, The Exmoor Singers, Jacob Plooij, Elisabeth Smalt, Martijn Vink, Nora Mulder. 24 -page digipak with essay by Bob Gilmore and text by Yannis Kyriakides and artwork by Isabelle Vigier.
