Eric Ericson Chamber Choir - Henze / Shostakovich

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
Eric Ericson Chamber Choir was founded already in 1945 by Eric Ericson. The choir has ever since occupied a central position in Swedish and international musical life. It has a very broad repertoire ranging from Renaissance music to the latest avant-garde. Internationally, the choir ranks among the absolute elite because of its professionalism, and it has been awarded a number of coveted distinctions. With several tours abroad every year, Eric Ericson Chamber Choir is frequently heard in Europe, the USA as well as Canada. They have also made many recordings (including a Caprice release with Nordic choral works).

Eric Ericson himself, born in 1918, is the unrivalled master in the field of choir conducting for the vast majority of choir leaders and choral singers. He has received many awards, including the Music Prize of the Nordic Council and the Polar Music Prize. Eric Ericson is also a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music and an honorary president of the International Federation for Choral Music.

On this album the choir sings music by Hans Werner Henze and Dmitri Shostakovich - two composers that were in the limelight during 2006. Hans Werner Henze's music was performed at the Composer Festival at the Stockholm Concert Hall in the same year, and here the choir performed Henze's Orpheus Behind the Wire for a cappella choir, a work that is included on the album. In the festival Music Around, in the Öresund region, the same year, Shostakovich was the theme and the choir performs his Songs on Poems of 19th Century Revolutionary Poets (sung in Russian) on the second part of the album.
