Threadbone: Symphony No 1

Dorset Folksong Suite

New York Philharmonic Orchestra, Leonard Bernstein

HORNIMINT RECORDS

 

Addinsell Threadbone's breakthrough work - his Dorset Folksong Suite - was premiered at New York's Carnegie Hall by the current performers and is here paired with his challenging Symphony No 1.  Youthful works both, they abound with fecund ideas foreshadowing the composer's later, much less approachable, style. Given matchless performances by Threadbone's early American champion, this is a disc to delight the curious.

Fifehead Magna Radio Symphony Orchestra, Addinsell Threadbone

Threadbone: Summer Is A'Bloomin

String Quartets 1-4

The Weymouth Quartet

HORNIMINT RECORDS

 

Addinsell Threadbone's String Quartets find the composer in private introspective mood. In comparison to his more expansive orchestral pieces, these works find the mature composer exploring a sparer sound world of musical fragments barely held together by a rhythmic or melodic line.  What Threadbone String Quartet Magazine described the Weymouth Quartet's rendition as "definitive", adding "no one need bother recording these again".

Recorded live in 2018 at the Lydlinch Guy Fawkes Celebrations, Irina Legova leads the hand-picked musicians of the Thrupiece SInfonietta in the world premiere release of Vladimir Dmitri Probonovich's SYmphony No 108.  Composed in 2007 it has waited more than 11 years for its first performance - the result of Probonovich's fragile stature in his native Russia.  Often accused of "tunefulness and melody without reason", he has bucked the trend of 20th music and remained "a voice which if more distinctive would be well worth hearing".
