Bassist Hervé Rémond performs "Mr. T His Fancy" by Barney Childs

Performer's note:

"Mr. T His Fancy" (1967) is the third opus of the American composer Barney Childs (1926-2000), dedicated to the double bass after "Sonata for Bass Alone" (1960) and "Closing Music I" (1964). Like the first two pieces "Mr T." Is written and expressly dedicated to his friend the bassist Bertram Turetzky, to whom we owe credit for a revolution in the practice of double bass as a solo instrument in the second half of the 20th century.

David Evan Jones recording release "News from Afar" on Centaur

News From Afar (for chamber ensembles with news broadcasts transformed) with music by David Evan Jones, was released in September 2016  by Centaur Records.  Listening links on YouTube can be found here.  Distributor Archiv Music is handling sales of this CD.

Program note:

News from Afar presents five compositions (2010-2015) by David Evan Jones (b. 1946) all of which integrate computer processed news broadcasts with instruments performing live. These pieces transform reports of the difficult news of our day and bring them into the contemplative frame of the concert hall.
