Following up on Etude and Reflections, her recent, highly acclaimed releases on BIS, Clare Hammond
performs music by her compatriot, the British composer Kenneth Hesketh (b.1968). Hesketh's stimuli are
broad and include classical architecture, medieval iconography, poetry and Bauhaus constructivism; in her
liner notes, Clare Hammond describes his works for the piano as 'music of phenomenal depth in which
there is always something new to discover, something to surprise even the most jaded ear.' The centrepiece
of the disc is Horae (pro clara), composed for Clare Hammond: a 40-minute cycle in twelve parts which
together form a breviary or miniature book of hours. None of the movements are titled, but many are
provided with evocative performance directions, such as ‘as fleet as the tiniest humming bird' and ‘impishly
sardonic’. Some also incorporate literary references, such as a quote from 1 Corinthians in the twelfth: ‘for
now we see through a glass, darkly’. Each piece explores various compositional ideas, and thematic
material is shared across the set. The three shorter works that frame Horae are all earlier works, two of
them having their origins in music composed for other forces. Notte Oscura was written in 2002 and is
essentially a piano transcription of music from Hesketh’s opera The Overcoat, after Nikolai Gogol's short
story. Composed in the same year, Three Japanese Miniatures develops material from another stage
project, a puppet ballet based on Japanese folk tales entitled The Record of Ancient Matters. The work that
opens the disc, Through Magic Casements from 2008, takes its title from another literary source: Keats’
poem Ode to a Nightingale. Many of the sonic effects seem to echo imagery in the poem, and the music
evaporates at the end, as in Keats’ poem: ‘Fled is that music: – do I wake or sleep?’
