Bozzini+ combines Montreal's famed Quatuor Bozzini with pianist Philip Thomas and Scottish fiddler Sarah-Jane Summers in world premiere recordings of piano quintets by Bryn Harrison and Mary Bellamy and a work for string quartet, fiddle and electronics by Monty Adkins. This release is the culmination of a three-year project that included collaborative development residencies, workshops, performances, and recordings scattered between Huddersfield, Canada, Scotland, and Norway. The three compositions presented on Bozzini+ represent diverse aesthetic approaches and working methods. Bryn Harrison's Piano Quintet features rapid, tangled, filigree cycles and not-quite-repeating loops across it's nearly hour-long duration, particularly through it's dense, intricate piano writing. Continuing Harrison's interest in the role of memory in our temporal perception of music, these cycles are more varied than in his previous work - they are layered and intertwined, presented forwards, backwards, often at the same time or at subtly slower or faster rates to produce a multi-dimensional view of time passing. Mary Bellamy's 'beneath an ocean of air' draws it's inspiration from the artwork of James Turrell, and specifically his Deer Shelter Skyspace from the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Bellamy creates a musical analogue that replicates the experience of light and air inside of Turrell's sculpture through high, untethered whistles, flickers, wisps and slides, created through a collection of novel performance reworking of instrumental material composed for Summers and the Bozzini Quartet inspired by the Norwegian landscape where Summers lives as well as the Scottish and Norwegian folk traditions she blends in her work. Adkins takes these audio documents as a starting point and reuses, alters, effaces, and obfuscates the original material, extending freezing and stretching it into a texture that becomes suspended, glacial, and timeless.
