The Fish that Became the Sun Recording (2018)


An image of the Octandre Ensemble recording on a modern, timber-lined concert platform. There are 3 groups of 4 players playing a large assortment of instruments in a large semi-circle around the stage, plus Jon Hargreaves conducting in the middle. The mood is informal, but busy.

With a host of collaborators, Octandre Ensemble recorded Frank Denyer’s epic The Fish that Became the Sun (1991/96) at the Menuhin Hall, Surrey. The disc was released on Another Timbre records in November, 2019.
