Emily Howard, by Ambache (Raising the Profile of Music by Women)

Today we received a CD of music by Emily Howard - Magnetite. There's orchestral, vocal and string quartet repertoire from this innovative composer. The CD was supported by the Trust, who tell us that Emily has a rare ability to combine musical ideas with extra-musical interests including science, mathematics, philosophy and sport. The CD was favourably reviewed on Radio 3's Record Review recently.
It is a lovely addition to stock, and also gives us the opportunity to tell you about this worthy charitable trust.
Take a look:-
  • Magnetite (the most recent donation), a CD of Emily Howard's music
  • A Triple Portrait: Chamber music by Elena Firsova, played by the Marsyas Trio.  Soviet composer Elena Firsova has composed 150+ pieces, yet is little known in the UK.
