NEW CD - Hazel Leach

Hazel Leach is a composer, conductor & leader of The United Women's Orchestra and also founder The Composers' Collective Berlin, The COB is a large orchestra, with strings, horns and rhythm section. The members of the orchestra are not only improvising instrumentalists, but are also the composers. There is no fixed line-up: the composers can select instruments from the pool, to develop a brand-new and innovative orchestral repertoire with stylistic influences ranging from classical to jazz and from folk to free…. the music written for this band has no exclusion zones.
Their new CD Holding Pattern is a compilation of pieces written by nine different composers, presenting the depth and variety of nine different personalities. Many of the pieces were composed during lockdown: with hindsight, this had more influence on the creative process than was ever imagined. Sources of inspiration range from the poetry of Dylan Thomas to the argentinian night sky, from furniture design to travels in Bolivia. The wide range of instrumental colours gives rise to shades of tango, symphonic and film music.
