ROSE, JON/ MARSHALL, HANNAH/ WESTON, VERYAN: Tuning out (dbl CD)
If I may echo my old pal Samuel Beckett, this is the dogís bollocks. Not a toe-tapper but a unique aural experience filled with microtonality, inspired playing, extraordinary aesthetic affinities and real focus. Taken from live concert recordings made in English churches last year (Liverpool, York, Newcastle, Sheffield and London) that were selected for their possession of tracker action organs (in which there is a mechanical link between keys, stops, pedals and the valve that regulates airflow, allowing for incredibly rich timbral, harmonic and pitch variations). Cellist Hannah Marshall and Violinist Jon Rose complete this extraordinarily sensitive and flexible trio characterised by (if it isnít an oxymoron) understated virtuoso playing. The result is a music that defies all categorisation. The dogís bollocks. Nice package, literate sleeve-notes. Deep-listening rewarded, best in single doses.
