Accolades for David Brynjar Franzson & Yarn/Wire

Happy new year from the PSNY blog! 2015 is a promising year for new music, just as 2014 was; though so much has happened in the previous season that we haven't been able to tell you about it!

So, briefly, we'd like to call your attention to David Brynjar Franzson. Ever since we started publishing his works back in 2013, David has proven to be a singular, strong voice in contemporary music. Last year, his ambitious recording project with Yarn/Wire resulted in a CD on the Wergo record label, which has won numerous accolades and ecstatic reviews— in GramophoneTempo, 5against4, and The Wire, which called it "a visceral recording that makes sounds inside and outside the pianos vividly present...a pungent performance, full of drama and unrest."

The success of this CD has been noted not only in America, but also internationally; it also was nominated for a 2014 Icelandic Music Award

Check out an excerpt from the CD here. Also, check out an interview with Yarn/Wire's Ian Antonio and Russell Greenberg discussing the recording process at EMPAC:
