Bingham, Judith - The Secret Garden - Choral Music - BBC Symphony Chorus

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar

'Few contemporary composers have such a gift for haunting a listener as Judith Bingham. Her collection of works here have such character (and the off echo of Benjamin Britten is no bad thing), that they are at once immediately accessible and arresting. Music that stays with you.'

"Judith Bingham is that seemingly rare thing in contemporary music. A composer whose music has the ability to connect and communicate with its audience on an immediate and direct level."

"...en intressant kompositör med ett personligt tonspråk"
(Skånska Dagbladet)

• The British composer Judith Bingham was for several years a member of the BBC Singers and before that the BBC Symphony Chorus, so it is fitting that choral music makes up a major part of her compositional output.

• Salt in the Blood is a ghost story based on the legend of a fatal quarrel between two Norwegian sailors over who was the better dancer. Four traditional sea shanties form the backbone of the music, and its text draws from fragments of ships’ log books, the Beaufort Scale and Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

• A 2004 BBC Proms commission, The Secret Garden is a magical and intriguing piece in which Bingham imagines what the Garden of Eden was like after Adam and Eve’s expulsion, and whose central image is the extraordinary synergy that exists between plants and insects.

• In 2006 Judith Bingham won the British Composer Award for choral music.
