Tavener's new phase moves into more expressive and, dare one say it, passionate territory, with this CD, his most ambititous song-cycle to date.
Scored simply for soprano - the sublime Patricia Rozario - piano, violin, viola and Tibetan temble bowls, Schuon Lieder plays continuously for an hour, with the 19 songs being linked by short instrumental passages. The music is at times moving, beautiftul, childlike and mystical - sometimes all of that together and more.
Althought Sir John has set Fritjof Schuon's poems before - in 2003's Schuon Hymnen (available on 'New Choral Works' performed by Stephen Layton and Polyphony; HyerpionCDA67475) - this new setting is more affecting and immediate. Very highly recommended.
