Jeremy Bell and Shoshana Telner A newly released Chestnut Hall Music recording features Jeremy performing the complete violin sonatas of Edvard Grieg, with pianist Shoshana Telner.   "Bell and Telner are obviously in their element, capturing the contrasting moods and meeting the various technical demands with aplomb. This is an outstanding first release and my only question is what took Bell so long?"  (Wholenote Magazine Jan/Feb 2016).

Timothy Corlis Timothy Corlis

Beginning with the DaCapo Chamber Choir recording of Silent Dawn (produced by Earl McCluskie), Timothy Corlis’ growing opus of choral music has been commissioned by Canada's leading choirs and performed across the nation to critical acclaim – in 2009 he was nominated for a Juno award for his Margaret Attwood inspired "Notes Towards a Poem that can never be Writtten" and he has been described as “a composer of great depth and passion, not to mention a pristine, polished craft” (The WholeNote, Toronto).

"Raven and the First Men" responds to Bill Reid’s monumental sculpture of the same title that depicts an ancient Haida legend about the very first moment in history, a moment when an enormous raven opened up a clamshell and found little men hiding inside... the first human beings. 


A trailer taken from a performance by the New Zealand String Quartet with clarinetist James Campbell recorded at the Festival of the Sound in Parry Sound, Ontario features excerpts of this inspiring work, and points towards an eventual Chestnut Hall Music full production:

With the most recent Chestnut Hall Music release of SANDRA MOGENSEN: Piano Music of Edvard Grieg Volume 3, Sandra completed a trilogy of uniquely programmed discs honouring the great Norwegian composer that began with her 2007 release in conjunction with the centenary of Grieg’s death.

The CDs have been warmly received and praised: "That is the deftest feather-lightest touch I’ve ever heard for the Grieg.”(Jurgen Gothe, CBC Radio Two), "A satisfying disc, worth repeated listening." (Wholenote Magazine).
