László Melis - The Apocalypse of Enoch

László Melis - The Apocalypse of Enoch
ID: BMCCD035
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Contemporary music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

One of the most frequently employed writers of film and theatre music in Hungary in recent years, László Melis, having received official recognition and several prizes, now makes a debut with his own solo album. Both pieces appearing on the CD share the common characteristics of being based on archaic texts though using material from contemporary literature at the same time, and the music is a synthesis of Gregorian, early European polyphony and elements reminiscent of African ethno that nevertheless has a distinctive contemporary sound. The title piece, written for a percussion group and voice solos, was recorded with the well-known Amadinda Group.

The chief piece of his new vocal album, to which he has given the title Two Monologues, intertwines two original parts from the Three Sisters opera, the arias of Tuzenbach and Andrei.

The recording was sponsored by the National Cultural Fund of Hungary and the HEAR Studio of the Hungarian Radio.

After a three-decade-long career it is the first time the outstanding figure of today's Hungarian contemporary music, the music director of the József Katona Theatre, the lecturer at the Academy of Film and Theatrical Arts has composed an electro-acoustic composition. László Sáry turned to the sounds of steam locomotives and their surroundings; he explores and exaggerates the 'human' features of these lovely engine-monsters that remind us of living creatures.
