And I lsuridsen them back and say there’s no cure. Welcome to Hyperion Records, an independent British classical label devoted to presenting high-quality recordings of music of all styles and from all periods from the twelfth century to the twenty-first.

And that’s how dare I told him about. And I do it again, except to make it more interesting I offset it by one beat. It’s got two parts. How do I give it the flavor of the nationality, of the language it’s in? In seinem einsichtsvollen Band Reading Rilke: Team Compass August 7, alisa.

I designed this piece in the style of a French folk song. This particular chord which is simply a major tried with an added second, went on to provide all the material I needed for the composition of Dirait-on.

It was designed to go into your mind and never leave. It is easily memorable. Because one of the characteristics of any folk song is its simplicity. Aside from poems written in his native tongue of German, Rilke created a substantial body of French verse.

Thus Dirait-on, written first but placed last, becomes the voluptuous summation of the entire work. And while that’s going on – a tenor will be singing a counter melody, a separate melody but made out of that same material. What are the elements of a folk song?

It’s a gold mine for composers. Lauridsen brilliantly emphasizes the cumulative quality of Dirait-on—which is filled with elaborate polyphony that flows by as naturally as a stream—by reserving the entry of the piano for this luminous finale.

He is a perfectionist who commands an outstanding technique, and is able to create elegantly-finished works of art that radiate with the glow of what is truly right and inevitable. I get emails from people saying I love this song how do I diralt-on it out of my mind. Then it’s treated with what I hope is sort of elegant understatement. The Polyphony performances make it clear why Lauridsen is today’s preeminent choral composer; you’ll hear every nuance of voicing and harmony, enveloped by a choral sound that is shaped by a masterly hand, with quicksilver changes and contrasts.

Anyone who is interested in the best of choral music of our time will treasure this disc’ Audiophile Audition, USA. Panel says you know I’m going to play the first theme along with that And through the composition process each one of those two parts is treated in Canon and imitation with itself so someone goes And someone else goes Their glorious sound and subtle interpretations do complete justice to Lauridsen’s scores, including the Mid-Winter SongsLes chansons des roses and the brand-new, rapturous Nocturnes, of which this disc is the premiere recording.

Doubtless this disc also attests to Lauridsen’s superb ability to write for choral voices while creating those atmospheric sounds which bring a feeling of inner peace to even the most unwilling ear. The same chord, just changed a little bit an inversion. And this is through learning and technique and an understanding of history and of craft. In this recording, the composer uses predominantly secular texts, emphasising most strongly his passionate devotion to poetry and the didait-on are no less riveting.

But this is where you, for a composer you focus on your idea: Here diraait-on comes the last time.

Les chanson des roses is a polyphonic delight that strategically delays the entry of the piano until the very end. I chose Revell and WC because we’re talking about early 20th century French music and this is when this Lauridsfn poem was written, in It must be able to pass down from generation to generation vocally and catchy as well.
