Album Recording Sessions at Stapleford Granary

Album Recording Sessions at Stapleford Granary

It’s been an utter delight recording this week (4-5th January) for my debut album with Delphian Records (out later this year).

Sessions took place in the stunning setting of Stapleford Granary, which also currently houses an exhibition of textile art by my own mother, Sabine Kaner.

The first two sessions featured Benjamin Baker, Daniel Lebhardt and Matthias Balzat in my Piano Trio, followed by Five Highland Scenes for violin and piano, pictured below.

The following day the Goldfield Ensemble (seen warming up below) recorded my recently premiered clarinet quintet, At Night.

Further sessions are due to take place in the coming weeks, with Guy Johnston performing my Cello Suite and Mark Simpson playing The Swift and The Kestrel for basset clarinet.

If you’d like a little preview of the music, here’s a short clip of Ben and Daniel in rehearsal, performing “Fireside Tale” from Five Highland Scenes:
