LAUNCH OF PARRY DISCS

 

20 December 2018 | 6.30pm
1901 Arts Club, 7 Exton Street
Waterloo, London, SE1 8UE

 

EM Records warmly invites you to the launch of two discs of music by Hubert Parry: our long-awaited triple-disc set of the complete music for violin and piano (‘The Wanderer’), and our recently-released disc of Parry songs featuring Jeremy Huw Williams and Paula Fan (‘With Harmony of Soul & Song’).

 

The launch will include a recital of Parry songs from Jeremy Huw Williams with pianist Duncan Honeybourne; and the Suite in F, the ‘Freundschaftslieder’ and the Sonata in D major, performed by violinist Rupert Marshall-Luck and Duncan Honeybourne. There will also be short talks on the discs and the works included thereon, as well as an opportunity to purchase EM Records and EM Publishing products.

 

The 1901 Arts Club is an elegant Victorian house, with a recital room on the ground floor and bar / gathering space upstairs. The address is 7 Exton Street, London SE1 8UE, and it is very close indeed to Waterloo Station; on-street parking can also be found in the area.

 

The Arts Club operates a cash bar, so refreshments will be available, but, sadly, we cannot include these in the ticket price at this venue.

 

Tickets are free to EM Records Foundation Subscribers or those who have subscribed to disc itself; otherwise they cost £20.00. Tickets are available from the ONLINE SHOP or by sending a cheque for the correct amount (please add £1.50 if you would like your tickets sent to you rather than held on the door for collection), made payable to ‘EMF Endeavours’, to Em Marshall-Luck at: PO Box 123, Clunton, Craven Arms, SY7 7BP.

REVIEWS
Beautifully shaped by Benjamin Frith... Beguiling sounds, graced by the tawny richness and unexaggerated line of Richard Jenkinson’s cello playing... The sense of purpose and sureness of line of Ian Venables’ music is pure oxygen.
EMR CD31 | BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE
Exquisitely rewarding... Ravishing accounts.
EMR CD029 | CHOIR AND ORGAN
This is music of great beauty and integrity and the performances fully do it justice. It would be criminal to let it pass you by.

EMR CD028 | INTERNATIONAL
RECORD REVIEW

The Bridge Quartet approach these pieces with a sympathetic and insightful warmth, and confirm their ambassadorial credentials for British chamber music. A lovely, radiant disc.
EMR CD025 | Gramophone
Duncan Honeybourne’s playing is astonishingly affectionate, yet never saccharine... Honeybourne plays with suave confidence.
EMR CD024 | INTERNATIONAL PIANO
Rupert Marshall-Luck is an ideal interpreter: generously but not effusively lyrical; agile and athletic... The warm, folk-song like slow movement is at times almost painfully beautiful, with a shimmering pastoral central section... Marshall-Luck is, again, indefatigable and keenly picks up on the work’s melancholic strain.  Finely recorded and with comprehensive booklet notes, this is a must for fans of 20th-century English repertoire.
