Stockholm Syndrome Ensemble


The music on this disc has a very specific location and time at its heart. Paris in 1907. The Englishman Ralph Vaughan-Williams and Spaniard Manuel de Falla both came to study there and both were accepted in to Maurice Ravelís close circle of friends (Vaughan-Williams as Ravelís student). This disc is built around the tantalising thought that these three very different artists were all in Paris at the same time discussing music and inspiring one another.

The Stockholm Syndrome Ensemble was born out of frustration. Frustration that there isnít more time to reflect and question why we do what we do when we play and listen to music. 'Our hope is that exposure to a different kind of concert experience might further open our ears and minds. Our goal is to bring music powerfully, colorfully, immediately and meaningfully in to the ear of the listener. We hope to forge a bridge between other kinds of music and art from the past and present. We might do this by playing shorter concerts, using pre-concerts and post-concerts to collect the musical inferences and influences that have been thrown up by a particular piece, and sometimes by dramatising the music.'
