Aux Confins de l’orage by Camille Pépin
Camille Pépin is a 31 year old French Composer. She has composed many orchestral pieces, concertos and chamber works as well as numerous pieces for smaller combinations of instruments.
The piece about which I write here (the English translation is ‘At the Edge of the Storm’) is an orchestral work written in 2020.
Dance Works for Two Pianos by Steve Martland
The late Steve Martland wrote the first version of Dance Works in 1993 as part of a collaboration with the London Contemporary Dance Theatre. The piece was scored for an amplified ensemble; Martland later wrote a version for two pianos, featuring the interplay of the two instruments acting as two equal forces.
‘Marejada’ by Angélica Négron
Angélica Négron is a composer and instrumentalist from Puerto Rico who has become established in the US although her music is little known in the UK – certainly I have never heard it played on UK radio. That ought to be remedied as I think she is a highly original and talented composer.
