Raymond Deane: Noctuary for piano
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.
