This release is the result of Richard Blackford’s doctorate at the University of Bristol, which investigates the use of polytempo. The recording is a way of applying the findings of his doctorate in a range of musical contexts.
Kalon is unique as it explores the use of polytempo in the context of extended tonality and modality, which could be said surpasses the complexity posed by serialist works of a similar nature, such as Stockhausen’s Gruppen or Carré.
This is the second recording released by the Albion Quartet, following their critically acclaimed first disc with Signum - Dvořák: Quartets nos. 5 & 12, ‘American’ & Suk: Meditation.
Violinist of the Albion Quartet Tamsin Waley-Cohen has featured as a soloist on the disc Niobe, featuring the premiere recording of a violin concerto, also composed by Richard Blackford.
