A Round-up of NMC on Spotify: The NMC Samplers & Songbook

To me NMC is the best independent classical label from the UK, only second to Hyperion, which is my most wanted label in Spotify. They have done wonderful recordings of some of the most interesting contemporary composers like Jonathan Harvey and Michael Finnissy.

Their catalog is dazzling, and luckily they have released a series of sampler CDs. Last year their 4 CD set The NMC Songbook has been voted Best Contemporary Release at the Classic FM Gramophone Awards. I created a Spotify playlist for these eight sampler CDs and the songbook collection. I'm sure every contemporary music fan will discover a lot of unheard gems in it. My personal favourite for now are Andrzej Panufnik's throbbing cello concerto played by Mstislav Rostropovich, and Ian Pace's performance of Christopher Fox's intricate piano music. Search for full recordings in Spotify when you find any sampler irritatingly bewildering:)

Here's the Spotify playlist for the NMC Samplers and Songbook: NMC Samplers & Songbook

Happy listening, and thanks the official Spotify twitter for twittering about this little blog:)
