The Masterworks of the New Era - Volume Eleven is a superb CD set which collects works by living composers, and with this 11th compilation the series continues to get better and better. The recording begins with a wonderful fanfare and navigates its way through exciting new pieces recorded by world-class orchestras. Particularly, the works by Middleton (disc 1) and Anderson (disc 2) are quite moving, and McConville's "Tableaux of Katrina" (disc 1) is a terrifying yet beautiful homage to the tragedy that struck the gulf coast in 2005. For shoppers who are looking for new music from some of the best living composers out there right now, be sure to give this a listen!

The ERM "Masterworks" series reaches its apex with this marvellous box-set compilation of contemporary composer's works. On Disc 1 (Track 2) Jonathan Little's elegant 15-minute tone poem, "Terpsichore - the Whirler, or Muse of Dance", is especially outstanding: a dynamic and sparkling major new work for virtuoso orchestra. All eleven volumes of the ERM "Masterworks" series are worthy of purchase but none more so than this exquisite compilation box-set. Truly outstanding.

I originally bought this CD because I am a fan of the music of David Arkenstone. Owning many of his newage cd's I was anxious to hear what he was going to create and he didn't dissappoint. His composition on the 3rd disc "Surrounded by Beauty" is just that; beautiful. My one complaint is that I am wanting more after it only being 3min long. Now the best reason for owning this collection is the 2nd disc. I was not familiar with any of the composers but this disc is stunning! It starts with an intense piece by Robert Hagenbuch titled "Homage to Barber". At 12 minutes in length it starts very low and haunting and gradually crescendos throughout. With the additions of different meters and themes , there is such tension created that by the end the listener is glad to hear the first notes of Andrew Anderson's beautiful "Small Town" just so they can breath again. Being a percussionist the composition created by Robert Ceely titled "Three Satires" is wonderful. The 2nd movement of the piece "Ritmit" has such interplay between the orchestra and the percussion that I hope Evelyn Glennie hears this piece and commissions Mr. Ceely to compose a new work for her.
While I look forward to a new disc by D. Arkenstone, I can also now look forward to finding and hearing new music by Hagenbuch, Anderson, and Ceely. I loved it! BRAVO!!!

This is the first time I've come across the Masterworks of the New Era series. It's hard to find fault with such a remarkably inventive and diverse collection of composers and the many inspired performances herein. Certainly something for everyone. For me, one of the immediate stand-outs is the more "traditional avant-garde" fare of Tom Ingoldsby's "They Once Were..." (bringing to mind Messiaen and Berg). I have a cd of Ingoldsby's chamber works, and it is wonderful finally to hear his work thundering along with full orchestra, especially that marvellous brass section! An intense and haunting piece. Many thanks to ERM for bringing us contemporary classics by "underheard" composers at a bargain price.
