Seven Cedars Music is a new record label which endeavours to take the concept of period performance and extend it further, by placing an added emphasis on the historical accuracy of the performance - not just with period instruments, but also through interpretation, orchestration and the use of performance spaces contemporary to the music.

Recognising that musical history is being written daily by modern composers worldwide, 
Seven Cedars Music does not limit the repertoire to a certain period, but explores period performance in any era, be it early Renaissance repertoire, a 21st Century composition or anything in between.

FIESTA!
Piano Works by Iain Farrington

Virtuoso pianist, Iain Farrington skillfully paints a wide range of musical scenes and situations in this self-composed debut CD. Celebrations, parades, an aray of varying moods, and a tongue-in-cheek nod towards Mozart, all feature on this fabulous disc.

The recording features four piano works of varying and disparate angles: jazzy, political, pictorial and private. It is music that aims to encompass many contrasting elements, from technical virtuosity to calm simplicity, from tunefully melodic to harshly dissonant, from lightweight fun to melancholic seriousness.

20th Century Piano Masterworks
Maria McGarry

Irish virtuoso pianist Maria McGarry  has developed a  niche in the piano repertoire of the early
20th century. Maria was awarded an Arts Council of Ireland bursary to specialise in the music of Olivier Messaien, and this led to a series of performances of the complete Vingt Regards sur l’Enfant Jesus
cycle to mark the centenary of the birth of Olivier Messaien in 2008. This recording features works from Vingt Regards sur l’Enfant Jesus alongside a work from Messiaen's Catalogue d’Oiseaux plus other great works of the European 20th Century piano repertory by Berg, Schonberg and Granados.
