Hugh Tinney (piano)
Making his Resonus debut, the prize-winning pianist Hugh Tinney presents a world premiere recording of the celebrated Irish composer Raymond Deane's cycle of night-pieces for piano, Noctuary.

Composed in 2010-11, and recorded in the composer's 60th birthday year, Noctuary takes influence from the Cereus drawings by the artist Renate Debrun that feature in the album's artwork and booklet. Featuring two books of six movements each, Noctuary presents a varied, vivid and atmospheric representation of the dead of night.

A major contributor to Irish concert life in the last thirty years as well as perforing with many great orchestras throughout the world, Hugh Tinney performs Noctuary with panache and dedication, creating a dramatically lucid and eloquent nocturnal sound world.

'[...] an elegant, erudite, occasionally enigmatic, often exciting re-imagining of the nocturne. [...] ably abetted by the acutely finessed playing of Hugh Tinney [...] The result is a challenging and compelling set of crepuscular miniatures.'
Classical Ear (5 stars)

Classical Ear (5 stars)

'[...] the cycle feels much more than the sum of its individual parts. That it is the case is due in no small part to the artistry of Hugh Tinney, whose sheer breadth of repertoire has made possible a range of major retrospectives as well as expanding present-day pianism [...] another notable release from Resonus.'
Gramophone

'Duskiss has a seductive sense of ominous silence while, by contrast, …hitherandthithering… skitters and rushes headlong at us. The drawings which provoked the pieces are included in a detailed booklet.'
