Louth Contemporary Music Society (LCMS) celebrates some of the most world’s most popular contemporary composers in its first-ever CD. The new disc is titled A Place Between, and features world première recordings of works by John Tavener, Arvo Pärt, Valentin Silvestrov, Alexander Knaifel as well as pieces by Henryk Górecki and John Cage. All of these composers have, in various ways, been deeply influenced by profound spiritual, religious or cultural encounters. The CD, which is released on the Society’s Louth Sounds record label on 1 May 2009, comes in a beautiful limited edition release.
The new release features a number of world renowned performers including the soprano Patricia Rozario, the Callino Quartet, pianist Michael McHale, violinist Ioana Petcu-Colan, flautist Vourneen Ryan and percussionist Stephen Kelly. The recordings were made in the acoustically superb historic setting of St. Peter’s Church of Ireland in Drogheda, and the mixing, mastering and editing were carried out in the state-of-the-art Rainbow Studios in Oslo.
The CD intersperses, to wonderful effect, beautiful works for string quartet (Silvestrov''s meditative “Ikon”, Tavener''s deeply moving “Ikon of Joy/Sorrow," Pärt''s reflective “Da Pacem Domine”) with two solo piano works (Pärt''s uplifting “Hymn to a Great City," Cage’s melodic and expressive “In a Landscape”). Górecki''s memorial for Michael Vyner "Good Night" and Knaifel’s mystical “O Heavenly King” both feature the haunting voice of soprano Patricia Rozario. Silvestrov''s 25.X.1893 lullaby is a melancholic and lyrical piece for violin and piano.
