    sirius quartet.jpg
    I've mentioned the Sirius Quartet before here at TC (apparently to the interest of absolutely no one). Its members compose the music, which while largely grounded in the classical string quartet tradition in form and function, borrows elements from various contemporary popular genres, with energetic and eclectic results.

    I don't know the recording you posted but have enjoyed their work on others.

    Yes, they've done other things, and have a more recent album of their own music, called "New World" (and yes, the title track, composed by violinist Gregor Huebner, makes extensive references to a certain Dvorak symphony).

    Taylor Brook - Five Weather Reports (2014)



    I've just recently discovered this composer, and this is the second work of his I've heard (after Virtutes Occultae (2017)). I love it.

    From the composer's webiste:

    Five Weather Reports was written for the TAK ensemble in the Winter of 2014 and was developed from an earlier composition for solo soprano and electronics of the same name. The text set in this piece comes from excerpts of David Ohle’s 1974 science-fiction novel Motorman. Five Weather Reports consists of five songs that set bizarre and absurd weather reports that are heard over the radio by the Ohle’s protagonist, Moldenke. Although the book was published many decades ago, these excerpts take on an intensified contemporary environmental and societal meaning.

    Isabel Mundry - Dufay Bearbeitungen (2003/4)



    Isabel Mundry was a student with Zender at the same time he was composing Winterreise. While Zender’s interests lie in the great composers of the German Classical-Romantic era, Mundry is more interested in the composers of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Inspirations from these periods may be found in her work as early as Spiegel Bilder (1996), for clarinet and accordion. However, Dufay-Bearbeitungen (Dufay Arrangements, 2003–4) marks the first time she worked directly on music by an older composer. This was followed by two sets of pieces based on harpsichord music by Louis Couperin, Non mésuré—mit Louis Couperin I/ II (2008–9) and the large-scale cycle Schwankende Zeit (Fluctuating time, 2007–9); and Scandello-Verwehungen (Scandello drifts, 2010), based on a mass by the mid-sixteenth-century Italian composer Antonio Scandello. Dufay-Bearbeitungen is based on seven chansons by the leading fifteenth-century Franco-Flemish composer Guillaume Du Fay. Originally composed for three voices, Mundry arranged Du Fay’s songs for an ensemble of violin, viola, cello, flute, oboe, clarinet, piano, and percussion. The seven pieces are divided into three sets—the first set includes chansons 1–3, the second contains 4–6, and the third is made up of only chanson 7—which may be interpolated with other works. The staging suggests a discontinuous presentation, and each set requires a slightly different arrangement. In the first, all eight instruments are on stage. Piano and percussion are at the back, and the three winds and three strings sit on either side. For the second set, the piano and percussion stay where they are, but the viola moves to center stage, and the other instruments encircle the audience. For the last chanson, the piano and percussion again stay in place, but all six melody instruments move into the hall. They are still arranged in two groups of three, but this time they flank the audience on either side. The overall movement is from the stage into the auditorium, from a unified sound-space to a divided one.”

    That’s quite an unusually long work for Crane.

    Interesting, but I felt it was too long. I liked the colors and textures, reminded me a little of '70s Miles Davis.
