Andrea Luchesi: Requiem

Andrea Luchesi: Requiem


Luchesi:

Requiem and Dies Irae

Ave Maria


Roberta Canzian (soprano), Elena Biscuola (mezzo-soprano), Riccardo Botta (tenor), Armando Badia (baritone)

Nuova Orchestra Busoni, Choir of the Cappella Civica of Trieste, Massimo Belli

The compositions recorded in this album are important works belonging to the sacred music repertoire of Andrea Luchesi: the Offertorium “Ave Maria” in D Major, for solo, four part choir, orchestra and basso continuo, the “Requiem” and the “Dies Irae”, all preserved in handwritten score and parts in Modena at the Library Estense (F. 661). The “Ave Maria”, recorded here for the first time, is without doubt a score of consistent quality and inspiration: it is highly original and seen as more interesting than some of the other major works recorded in this album. The “Requiem” for example, poses some historical and stylistic problems: it is an assembly of two works (the “Requiem” and the “Dies Irae” for solo, four-voice mixed choir and orchestra - Modena, F. 656) and the ‘Messa in F major’ for four-voice and orchestral (F. 647). The connection between the two creations, was clearly made because the tonality (F major) is the same for both works. However, there are also themes in the “Requiem” and in the “Dies irae” which echo parts of the mass. Luchesi’s sacred music, too, contains compositions of the most elevated quality, testament of a very important though forgotten composer of the eighteenth century.

Throughout his long and influential composing life Per Nørgård (b. 1932) has had an extensive relationship with the organ. On this recording the renowned organist Jens E. Christensen performs both The Organ Book, an evocative collection of shorter pieces suitable for use in church services, and the overwhelming Canon, a large-scale organ work characterized by its infinity series and golden rhythmic proportions.

Siegel, W: Celebration

Siegel, W: Celebration


Wayne Siegel (electronics)

A computer is connected to a massive pipe organ and robot musicians take control for the next 60 minutes–without human intervention. California-born composer Wayne Siegel (b. 1953) is a pioneer of computer-based music. In his work Celebration, the four manuals of the Hallgrímskirkja pipe organ in Reykjavík are controlled by four virtual musicians, all of them eager to express themselves individually but also programmed to perform together. Icelandic hymns and live-data from a weather satellite are interpreted by the virtual musicians playing the pipe organ, embedding human culture and the climate of our planet in everything they say.
