Such a Sky
Such a Sky (Move Records MD3364)
SKU: 16264
AU $23.65

Label: Move Records Cat. No.: MD3364 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

Such a Sky features recordings of live performances from the Melbourne Recital centre. Cellist, Imogen Manins and Pianist, Tony Gould are joined by a stella lineup of guests including Slava Grigoryan, David Jones, Gian Slater and Riley Lee.

Such A Sky, by the Manins & Gould partnership, is an album for dreaming; for lying back and losing oneself in the promise of infinity. Music takes off where words end; the ringing warmth of the cello, along with the lyrical wistfulness of piano and extraordinary guest musicians, lead you beyond the gateway of this world to a place of never ending possibility.

In keeping with the Manins&Gould tradition, the pair takes snatches of melodic material, improvising and weaving them through the soundscape of the CD; echoing them back in different guises. The new album also sees the return of a couple of old favourites; Paul McCandless' Queen of Sydney and Einaudi's Canzone Popolare (1500ca) as well as an evocative rendition of the WH Auden poem, Funeral Blues.

All tracks were recorded live at the Melbourne Recital Centre's Salon with guest percussionists Eugene Ughetti and David Jones, dew-drop clear voice of Gian Slater virtuoso guitarist Slava Grigoryan and shakuhachi master Riley Lee. Says Manins: "Gould and I work with our collaborators in choosing pieces which can be vehicles for our spontaneity and creativity as individual musicians and as an ensemble."

The album also features arrangements of large scale works by Ross Edwards (Dawn Mantras) and Michael Atherton (Shall we Dream?) by Manins who says: "I think these pieces work suprisingly well with only three or four players."

Such A Sky follows Manins&Gould's two previous and much acclaimed collaborations with Jones: 'Under the Tall Trees' (ABC, 2008) and 'The Cello and the Mockingbird' (Move Records 2011).

Artists: Imogen Manins [cello], Tony Gould [piano], Slava Grigoryan, David Jones, Gian Slater, Riley Lee.
