Live recording of Circus Games

The recital last week seemed to go down well with the Swiss audience.  It was constructed of pairs of works, for example Xenakis would segue into a Brahms song or Scelsi into a Schubert song.  The highlight and centre point of the evening was without doubt the world premiere of Rob Keeley’s Circus Games.  Having only run through the piece with a piano reduction as accompaniment, it really came alive when performed with its true orchestration.  The colours and interplay between the solo part and the ensemble create a fascinating sound-world, so much so that despite being surrounded by composers of the magnitude of Brahms, Mahler and Schubert, it was actually the Keeley which I carried on whistling for the rest of the week.

Here is a recording of the work as performed in the Yehudi Menuhin Forum in Bern on May 28th, 2014, conducted by Ian Bousfield
