Andere Infos:

This CD is a live recording of the hugely successful concert performed at London’s Royal Festival Hall in May 2008, featuring the world premiere of a choral work about the Asian tsunami of 2004, by British composer Chris Williams. This powerful and moving new piece, Songs of the Coromandel Coast, greeted by a standing ovation, is a sequel to Williams’ Tsunami Requiem, also featured here, along with his new brass quintet Malabar. Tsunami Requiem retells the events on Boxing Day 2004 intertwined with text from the requiem mass. Songs of the Coromandel Coast shows life three years on, using four contrasting sea shanties making this work powerful, moving and accessible. Malabar provides a refreshing interlude from these two choral masterpieces.

•Three highly original, accessible new works by the brilliantly versatile British composer Chris Williams
•James Gilchrist on glorious form, ‘now unsurpassed among lyric tenors in sweetness and technical security’, according to the Independent
•The internationally renowned Choir of Eltham College singing with clarity and power
•English Philharmonia and the Chorus in stunning form under their principal conductor Graham Wili
•Sparkling support from English Brass, accompanying Tsunami Requiem and performing Malabar with supreme mastery
