News   -  New CD Recording and concerto on YouTube, Geoff Poole

YouTube now hosts my concerto for Ghanean Drummer and 5 ensembles in a recently recovered video of the 1991 premiere. Its in two 15-minute chunks slightly overlapping, Part II takes over from when the African song gives way to an orchestral ff chaos. If you like it do signal a thumbs-up on YouTube.

My latest CD, JOYOUS LAKE has just been released by Prima Facie. You can hear a variety of Bristol and other composers - including our very own Jean Hasse - in 20 piano pieces dedicated to and performed by myself. It also queezes in three of my string compositions, adding up to a disc-stretching 78 minutes of wonderfully recorded new music. The string orchestra piece, Qigong, is a Huddersfield Festival Commission (1999) and a companion piece to Crossing Ohashi Bridge which came out last November on NMC - winning a place in the Sunday Times Top Ten new music discs of 2011.

Iím offering JOYOUS LAKE to SCA members at a bargain £8.00 instead of the RRP £12.50. (Add £2 postage and packing if applicable.) I also have for sale some copies of several of my earlier CDs such as Septembral, Sailing With Archangels etc. - see reviews and listings on my website www.geoffpoole.co.uk. (I donít have any of the NMC and RCA discs though.)
