Chiasmus CD: Music for the Third Millenium

Chiasmus CD: Music for the Third Millenium

Music for the Third Millennium is a compilation of brilliantly remastered live recordings from Chiasmus events in York and Manchester (UK) during 2010. Including several Chiasmus commissions, the disc presents a view of the diversity in new music at the end of the first decade of the Twenty-first Century. Distinct from the traditional hub of British new music in London, this album focuses on the distinctive and eclectic sounds of four composers from the North-west of England (Abbott, Pycroft, Stephenson and Temperley) complemented by works from further afield by Gareth Churchill (Wales) and Robert A. Baker (Canada). Exquisitely produced and with remarkable fractal-based artwork, this CD is a must-have for those interested in exploring the unusual side of new classical music.
