Product description

Product Description

The National Arts Centre Orchestra under Trevor Pinnock performs award-winning composer Linda Bouchard’s music. Repertoire includes the title work; "Songs for an Acrobat" with baritone Kevin McMillan, "Vertige", "Ressac", and "Eternity." "This is one of the finest recordings of the season." - Toronto Star "Wonderful music." - Ottawa Citizen

Amazon.co.uk

Linda Bouchard's celebrated compositions straddle the orchestral divides among 19th-century post-Romantic music, serialism, and avant-garde New Music. This compendium begins with the now-brassy, now-pastoral "Exquisite Fires," which has a wide stylistic and instrumental range that echoes Arvo PĠrt's Arbos and even Penderecki's 1950s-era work. The longest piece, Songs for an Acrobat, sets Maurice Toruigny's libretto--a lengthy poetic look at physical desire, passion, love, and the threat of loss in the age of AIDS--to music that encompasses sweeping, string-ensemble lushness and horn-fronted, glowering precipices. Percussion is a frequent ingredient for Bouchard, and she uses it often as hefty punctuation--and, as on the short, magnificent Vertige as a kind of prime-mover pushing a surge-and-swirl cycle of strings, brass, and woodwinds. Bouchard's string-and-brass studies get further development in Ressac, where string glissandi shear the air behind soft piano chromaticism and curving horn forms. Eternity closes the recording with sprays of tension and percussive brilliance. --Andrew Bartlett
