Petitgirard, Laurent - Symphonic Poems: Les Douze Gardiens du Temple / Poème / Euphonia - Orchestre National de Bordeaux Aquitane

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
An eclectic musician with a compelling melodic gift, Laurent Petitgirard combines a career as a composer of orchestral and film music with that of an international conductor. Laurent Petitgirard received the Young Composer's Prize of the Societe des Auteurs et Compositeurs Dramatiques in 1987, the SACEM Prize in 1990, the Grand Prix Lycéen for Composers in 2000 for his Cello Concerto and another award from the SACD, the Prix Musique 2001, for his opera Joseph Merrick the Elephant Man.

This collection includes two of his most recent works, the exotically scored The Twelve Guards of the Temple, which uses five ancient Tibetan cymbals, and the radiant Poem for Large String Orchestra. The 1989 ballet Euphonia (based on a fictional story by none other than Hector Berlioz) describes a futuristic musical city ‘Euphonia’ in which a jealous composer sets a musical trap to destroy the woman who spurned him. Petitgirard here conducts the Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine, with whom he has a standing partnership, in his own compositions.

Petitgirard’s first opera, Joseph Merrick the Elephant Man can be heard on CD (Naxos 8.557608-09) and on DVD (Marco Polo 2.220001). This Naxos recording garnered much praise from MusicWeb: “we are coming to realise that there is a place in our musical world for operas whose virtues include strong construction and secure understanding of the operatic form, along with fine musical craftsmanship.”
