Continuum Sax | Sydney Chamber Choir : Northern Lights
It can sing, it can speak, and it will certainly seduce: the rich, sensuous tone of the saxophone is like no other instrument. Treat yourself to a feast of sound, with music for choir and saxophone quartet from a northern New World of contemporary music. The transcendent, prophetic simplicity of Arvo Pärts music never fails to touch the hearts of performers and audience alike. The other names may not be familiar, but don't let that put you off! Latvia, Estonia and Georgia are young nations with rich, ancient musical traditions that have passed through the oppression of the Soviet era and emerged full of hope and life.
Featured non-Australian music: Pärt - Bogoroditse Djevo and Seven Magnificat Antiphons; Sisask - Benedicto; Esenvalds - Evening; Tüür - Lamentatio; Kancheli - Amao Omi
