Notes & Reviews:
Ten years ago, a new generation of composers and musicians started putting on classical gigs in non-traditional venues. Since then, a new alternative classical music scene has emerged. Now, there are alt classical gigs happening all over London - everywhere from warehouses to pubs, to abandoned underground stations - essentially creating a new music movement. Nonclassical has been at the forefront of the new alternative classical scene in London, having carefully multi-track recorded most of the shows. This is the first of a series of exciting LIVE releases showcasing some of the most lively and talented contemporary musicians in the alternative classical scene in London. Among the featured composers are John Cage, Henry Cowell, Salvatore Sciarrino, Mark Anthony Turnage and Tom Waits. The performers include Abbattoir, Barnaby Archer, Azalea Ensemble, Linda Hirst, The House Of Bedlam, Ossian Ensemble and the Elysian Quartet.
