World Premiere Recording

This premiere recording of John Tavener's Towards Silence, written for four string quartets and a large Tibetan bowl, explores the nature of consciousness and the process of dying. Tavener had long wanted to write the work and persuaded Professor Paul Robertson (leader of the Medici Quartet and Co-Founder of the Music Mind Spirit Trust) to perform it. However, shortly after the manuscript was completed both men became critically ill and close to death themselves.

By August 2008 Robertson had recovered sufficiently to resuscitate the project, which had now taken on a profound significance for himself and for Tavener. The members of the Medici Quartet immediately agreed to reform and identified young professional string quartets with whom to perform and to act as musical mentors.

Tavener's vision was for all four quartets to be positioned high up in the cathedral dome, invisible to the audience, and arranged in the shape of a cross, bringing the Christian, Bhuddist and Hindu religions together. This sense of space has been captured in the recording, which is an SACD hybrid that can also be enjoyed on a surround sound setup.

GUIDO ALBERTO FANO - La mia sera - S.Mingardo - A. Orvieto

GUIDO ALBERTO FANO - La mia sera - S.Mingardo - A. Orvieto
ID: STR33866

Collection: World Premiere Recording
Subcollection: Vocal and Piano

Sara Mingardo is one of the few rare authentic contralto voices on today’s music scene, and last year she won the prestigious Premio Abbiati 2010 as ‘Best Italian Singer’. Here she wonderfully interprets, in a thrilling World Première Recording, lyrical pieces for voice and piano by Guido Alberto Fano, with Aldo Orvieto at the piano.
G. A. Fano was born in Padua in 1875 and he died exactly 50 years ago in a small town in Friuli. His approach to song seems akin to that of Ildebrando Pizzetti (1880-1968), who spoke of a new interest among Italian composers for vocal chamber music: “Incipit vita nova”, he proclaimed, with Dantesque tones he greeted the salvation of the genre from the monopoly enjoyed by the previous generation, first and foremost, the huge output of Abruzzo-born Francesco Tosti. A “new life” on which Pizzetti embarked by shedding the yolk of pleasant melody and conventional cadential formulae. These little known but highly attractive lyrical pieces, composed on immortal masterpieces by two great Italian poets, Giosuè Carducci (1835-1907) and Giovanni Pascoli (1855-1912), clearly show Fano’s distance from the precepts of late 19th-century drawing-room song.

ID: SIGCD335
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental

Welcome all Wonders: A Christmas Cantata is a large-scale work for choir, organ, and trumpet spanning 15 movements. It celebrates the Christmas story through an imaginative selection and juxtaposition of poetry and liturgical texts, and provides a multifaceted telling of the familiar narrative. The celebratory aspects of Christmas are tainted by darker themes that are inherent to the story but are easily overlooked, culminating in an enlightened and engaging work that explores the Christmas story in a profound manner.

The Choir of The Queen’s College, Oxford is among the finest and most active university choirs in the UK. Its wide-ranging repertory includes a rich array of Renaissance and Baroque music and contemporary works.
