Pavel Gomziakov

Russia-born cellist Pavel Gomziakov this month releases the first professional recording of a 1725 Stradivarius cello so rare and valuable that it received a full police escort to recording sessions. The release, which features works by Haydn including his Cello Concertos in C and D major, comes out on Onyx Classics on 20 May.


Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra 2016-2017 Season Announced

Connecting man and machine

Ravel loved mechanical toys and collected music boxes. Conlon Nancarrow wrote pieces for player piano. Even Beethoven used cutting edge innovations for his time, in the form of the pianoforte and metronome. Machinery has long fascinated composers, and never more so than today.

So there's something very apt about Dreamachine, a piece for solo percussion and orchestra by American composer Michael Daugherty, which the RPO and Scottish percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie will perform in Reading, Cambridge and London this June. Commissioned by the WDR Rundfunkorchester Köln, this four-movement work is inspired by images that, in Daugherty's words, 'connect man and machine in surprising ways.'

Concerns over funding
for the European Union Youth Orchestra

Disappointment as the EU's Creative Europe programme withdraws funding from the EUYO.

Milian Music presents a brand new compilation of the greatest film music and orchestrations from iconic Italian composer, orchestrator and conductor Ennio Morricone on June 17th. Throughout the course of his impressive career that has spanned seven decades, he has composed over 500 scores for cinema and television, won innumerable awards including an honorary Oscar in 2003, and made film music become a true art as important as classical music and cinema.

Whether for Sergio Leone’s ‘Spaghetti Westerns’ now synonymous with his name, his timeless themes (‘Le clan des siciliens’, ‘The Mission’, ‘Lolita’) or the latest film by Tarantino The Hateful Eight, which this year won a Golden Globe, Bafta and Oscar for Best Original Score, Ennio Morricone has lasted through the years as the film composer of many cult soundtracks, legendary melodies and brilliant orchestrations.

To celebrate Morricone’s exceptional contribution to the music industry, 23 of his greatest scores have been gathered on one CD, including ‘Once Upon A Time In The West’. Julibee is a fitting tribute to undoubtedly the greatest film composer of all time.
