The programme opens with two movements from Simaku’s Catena I for solo piano, performed by Joseph Houston – a York alumnus now based in Berlin.

In the piano quintet con-ri-sonanza (broadcast at 12’ 30’’), Houston is joined by the Paris-based Quatuor Diotima – the department’s ensemble in association, with whom Simaku has a longstanding collaboration.

The CD is to be released on Friday 6 November on the prestigious Swedish label BIS Records.

This CD was supported by a grant from the PRS Foundation Composers’ Fund in association with Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. Click here to listen to the programme.
