The new Tim Story release Collected will be available here, at nepenthemusic.com, for digital download on November 4, 2010. Then, on November 11, 2010 the Collected CD will be available direct from Nepenthe Music. Tim Story’s finest Windham Hill recordings, including a suite of music from his Grammy-nominated Legend of Sleepy Hollow soundtrack, and 3 previously-unreleased tracks. For the first time ever, Collected brings together two decades of pieces that Story recorded for a wide variety of Windham Hill samplers. Of the CD’s 19 tracks, 15 are from these popular samplers, and include some of Story’s best-known pieces, like Asleep the Snow Came Flying (from A Winter’s Solstice IV) and all five of Story’s originals from the acclaimed In Search of Angels soundtrack. Predominantly original compositions and several unique arrangements of classical pieces, many feature the contributions of oboist Kim Bryden and cellist Martha Reikow, long-time Story collaborators. Rarities include Homage (a never-released demo originally recorded for A Winter’s Solstice II), Viridian (a solo piano piece), and a 7-minute suite of instrumental music from his award-winning Sleepy Hollow children’s album with Glenn Close. These tracks, plus Interlude have never before appeared on CD. You may recognize Interlude in a more flushed out version that ended up as the first track of the Ashley/Story release Drop called A Ripening.
With the launch of the latest version of the Nepenthe website, not only will visitors be able to find the information they have come to expect regarding releases, but they will be able to buy directly from Nepenthe, and listen to track samples in a Flash player to help in purchasing decisions. And by the end of summer 2010, we will also offer digital downloads.
Downloadable music at NepentheMusic.com will begin with an exclusive digital version of Human Being. Digital tracks from this landmark recording will be available only at the Nepenthe Music website, and will include the liner notes written by Stephen Illfe in PDF form.
