Tenebrae: Piano works by John McCabe
Performed by Tamami Honma
Eight piano works by the late Sir John McCabe, now one of the most respected figures in British music. 'A splendid release. Make no mistake: Honma is a superb player. The composer provides his imprimatur of her in the booklet, but hearing her one appreciates immediately how technically able and interpretatively alert she is. Very strongly recommended.'  (Gramophone)
Works for Two Pianos
Performed by John McCabe & Tamami Honma

Copland - Danzón Cubano For Two Pianos;  Britten - Mazurka Elegiaca Op.23; Athanasiadis - Terpsichore Bemused; Stravinsky - Agon ‘Ballet For Twelve Dancers; Mcphee - Balinese Ceremonial Music; McCabe - Basse Danse

John McCabe and Tamami Honma (a pianist with a wide-ranging repertoire who has made herself a secure corner in McCabe’s music) offer everything with a spirit of adventure and enquiry. The disc is admirably balanced and presented (Gramophone)

John McCabe Piano Concerto No 2
Performed by Tamami Honma & St Christopher Chamber Orchestra of Vilnius
Chosen by Gramophone editor James Jolly as one of his Choice CDs and featured on the magazine's cover CD. 'All in all, McCabe demonstrates once again that he is a fine and under-valued composer. I hope this new CD (in excellent sound, incidentally) brings more of the recognition that his music deserves.' (International Music Review) 'Tamami Honma plays brilliantly, as do the splendid St Christopher Chamber Orchestra of Vilnius under Donatas Katkus's smart direction. Excellent sound, too. Very strongly recommended' (Gramophone)
Alan Rawsthorne Complete Piano Music
Performed by Tamami Honma and John McCabe
'Rawsthorne's approach to the piano is rooted in Chopin, whom he admired, but his writing is stamped with his own personality through his individual use of harmony. He made a valuable contribution to 20th-century British piano music. Excellent performances, well recorded.' (Gramophone)
 
Premonitions by Nigel Clarke
Performed by Peter Sheppard Skaerved, Tamami Honma, James Watson, Janne Thompson, Neil Heyde
'Assembled for this CD are some of the finest virtuoso exponents of their instruments available' (Pan Magazine) 'In his collaboration with specialists in the performance of contemporary music the composer has demonstated a willingness to ‘push the envelope’ of performance practice the better to express extremes of emotion or thought' (Records International) 'The English composer Nigel Clarke is scarcely alone in attempting to find a path away from modernism without entirely avoiding the materials and techniques which modernism brought into being. But if he’s ploughing an already well-tilled furrow, he is doing it with considerable flair. There’s a strong roster of players here' (BBC Music Magazine)
