  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Cuckoo is the sixth solo album from acclaimed UK violinist Steve Bingham, and consists of premiere recordings of seven pieces, all commissioned by Bingham. Utilising everything from solo acoustic violin to 6-string electric violin, loops and recorded birdsong - via electronic backing, multi-layered violins and delay effects - it’s a heady mix of styles and compositional approaches which Bingham takes in his stride, revelling not only in the differences between the works but also in the unexpected links that crop up; palindromic elements, birdsong, loss and more.

    Cuckoo confirms Bingham as a truly eclectic performer, following - as it does - albums that included pop covers, the Bach D minor Partita, film music by Michael Nyman, improvisation and more. Bingham writes: “On this album I wanted to explore the juxtaposition of seemingly disparate music which is bound together by one straightforward element - the violin. The album has been possible because of the creativity of seven very talented composers, and I’m proud to have been able to record these works for the very first time.”

about

Wayne Siegel writes: I have a cabin with a natural pond where salamanders live. In the springtime they can he observed lazily sunning themselves and then suddenly diving down through the pondweed. The piece starts with a slow, dreamy section that is interrupted by a quick and lively section and finally returns to a palindrome of the first. The original version was for baritone sax and electronics and was commissioned by the Czech saxophonist Katerina Pavíková, and the version for violin and electronics was commissioned by Steve Bingham.
