This June Erika Fox’s first portrait CD was released on NMC featuring Goldfield Ensemble, Richard Baker (cond) and Richard Uttley (piano). On Thursday 3 October the official CD launch will take place at the Austrian Cultural Forum, London.

The evening will include an interview with Goldfield Ensembles Director Kate Romano before a live performance of two pieces on the CD – On Visiting Stravinsky’s Grave at San Michele for piano solo and Malinconia Militare for piano quartet.

Since its release Erika Fox Paths CD has been broadcast worldwide, gathering enthusiastic reviews including Four Stars from All Music.

Composer Erika Fox (b. 1936) has all the newness, has the sort of “sound of surprise” that we expect and hope for in New Music Modernism. Everything has mass and weight; there are no superficial or facile byways. Erika Fox is a real treasure and I recommend you hear this by all means!

The four compositions on this disc, written between 1980 and 2005, have a much wider expressive profile than such purely ethnic aspects might suggest; and with that profile comes impressive technical resourcefulness. It’s all a long way from mere idiosyncrasy. On this evidence, more of Erika Fox’s music on disc would be very welcome.

Fox’s music is challenging, definitely, but also bracing. Refreshing, too…
