Peter Wiegold has spent many years studing Indian and Gamelan music, playing with leading Indian musicians in the Gemini-Bhavan Ensemble and in the English Gamelan Orchestra.
He is currently Professor, Head of Music Research, at Brunel University. In 2007 Peter wrote a highly acclaimed large-scale work for the BBC Proms entitled, He is armoured without for the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, musicians from Uzbekistan, the Coldstream Guards, 80 brass players plus solo trumpet and trombone. It was shortlisted for the Royal Philharmonic Society large-scale composition prize. Peter’s music is influenced by his strong interest in eastern philosophy, especially Buddhism.
Peter Wiegold’s music is a mixture of fully notated, freely improvised and anything in between - he often allows the performers to participate in the creative process. This is his first portrait recording on NMC.
Works on this disc include the plaintive, pastoral Earth, receive an honoured guest, for cor anglais and strings, inspired by WH Auden’s well known elegy for WB Yeats; the elemental Kalachakra for large ensemble depicting the creation of the universe using Tibetan bells and brass; and the bittersweet, Viennese Earth and Stars, commissioned for the 200th anniversary of Mozart’s death and featuring 4 harmonicas to represent an ancient funeral band, dug up from the soil by future generations.

WHITE DAWN - SONGS AND SOUNDSCAPES BY DAVID LUMSDAINE

WHITE DAWN - SONGS AND SOUNDSCAPES BY DAVID LUMSDAINE
ID: MSV28519
Disk: 2
Type: CD
Kolekce: Vocal CollectionPodkolekce: Voices and Chamber Ensemble

David Lumsdaine's work is mostly rooted in Australia where he was born though he now lives in the UK. This unique and intriguing set includes pieces for a variety of instruments (not all are vocal) a number of which relate to the Australian landscape and the sounds of its unique wildlife - which are also captured in live 'outback' recordings demonstrating the voices of the birds and creatures which inspired some of the works.

The music itself is most approachable and well written. Definitely an important addition to the modern music repertoire.

Saint-Saëns - Samson et Dalila (complete opera)

Saint-Saëns - Samson et Dalila (complete opera)
ID: OPD7028
Disk: 2
Type: CD
Podkolekce: Opera

Jon Vickers, Oralia Dominguez, Ernest Blanc, et al., vocal soloists/Netherlands Radio Orchestra & Chorus/Jean Fournet, conductor

Samson et Dalila, based on the colorful Bible story, has remained a reliable crowd pleaser since its premiere in 1877, and admiration for its considerable qualities has grown steadily over the years. For one thing, Dalila has no fewer than three major arias, each more enchanting than the one before - a circumstance virtually unique in Romantic opera. This live 1964 broadcast from Amsterdam presents an exciting performance with two outstanding leads, one who was universally famous, and one who should have been. Born in Canada in 1926 as the sixth of eight children, Jon Vickers was intent on a business career until, at age twenty-two, the exceptional qualities of his voice were so evident that he enrolled in the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. He was invited to join the Covent Garden Opera in London in 1957 and soon embarked upon a major international career. Beginning in 1960, he sang at the Metropolitan Opera in New York for more than twenty-five years. The role of Dalila is sung here by the Mexican mezzo-soprano Oralia Dominguez, a passionate singer who was the equal of Maria Callas in fiery temperament and sang opposite her in a famous Aida recording. Nearly everyone today agrees that Dominguez should have become a major international star. Her relatively few recordings are correspondingly all the more desirable.

“If you haven’t heard Vickers in the role of Samson, you haven’t heard Samson … [he is] caught here in his absolute prime … Oralia Dominguez sings Dalila … it’s a superb performance. The give-and-take between conductor and singers is absolutely organic … and the sheer tactile quality of Saint-Saëns’ score [is] beautifully served here.” - ROBERT LEVINE
