ORA, Suzi Digby

Launched at the Cutty Sark in Greenwich, and with an appearance on In Tune, earlier this year, ORA'S third album for harmonia mundi pays tribute to the particular golden age of Thomas Tallis.

"The opening years of the 21st century can justifiably lay claim to being a new golden age for choral music. I wanted to embark on a series of recordings to reflect this and to showcase some of today’s best contemporary composers, placing their works in direct relief with masterpieces from previous ages. This recording, the second in our ‘Renaissance gems and their reflections’ series, looks at the music of Thomas Tallis, and we are delighted to have commissioned a number of talented composers to offer their personal reflections on his works. I hope that these new pieces, like Tallis’ originals, will find their way into the repertoire of other vocal groups, delighting audiences both now and in the future." Suzi Digby OBE

“If the gospel-influenced title-track (set by Ken Burton and featuring a stratospheric solo tenor as a sort of celebrant) is the most immediately arresting, it's the spacious sound-worlds of Richard Allain and Frank Ferko which make the most enduring impact.” Presto Classical, June 2017

“The quality of the singing is first rate throughout, impeccably blended and beautifully tuned, giving a rich sense of unity to the whole endeavour…Suzi Digby is blazing a trail with ORA, building a bridge between older, well established music and contemporary composers, and she is doing it with exceptional intelligence. Many are the wonders, indeed.” MusicWeb International, 28th June 2017

“ORA’s singing of Tallis is almost the opposite of what you might call English Cathedral chaste. The approach is assertive, the relish of moments of dissonance unmistakable” Irish Times, 5th July 2017

“brought vividly to life by ORA under Suzi Digby. In Tallis’s O nata lux the harmonies are so daring that the Tudor master sounds quite up to the minute himself” Financial Times, 30th June 2017

“Really enjoyable juxtapositions; you get sixteen Tallis originals here alongside a variety of contemporary musical reflections” Record Review, 23rd July 2017

Cathy Berberian (soprano), Bruno Canino (piano, harpsichord)

Cathy Berberian was born in the United States of Armenian parents. While proficient in the traditional concert repertoire, Miss Berberian was renowned for her contribution to contemporary music. Her enormous flexibility and range together with a strong sense of theater and innate musicality have been acclaimed by press and public alike, and have inspired the creation of compositions by major contemporary composers such as Berio, Bussotti, Cage, Milhaud, Maderna, Pousseur, etc. One of the highlights of her career was her musical relationship with Stravinsky who made the final version of the “Elegy for JFK” for her voice and with whom she gave concerts and made Columbia recordings of Stravinsky’s vocal music.

Rota, N: Sinfonia sopra una canzone d'amore, etc.

Rota, N:

Sinfonia sopra una canzone d'amore

The “Sinfonia sopra una canzone d’amore” was written in 1947 but only given its first performance in 1972. The composer used music featured in three of the movements in two of his most famous film scores, “The Glass Mountain” and “The Leopard”, and consequently the piece has a cinematic quality, whilst remaining firmly in the romantic tradition.

Concerto Soirée for piano & orchestra

The “Concerto Soirée” for piano and orchestra, completed in 1958, is a far more demanding work. It still features many references to his film music, including a wonderful melancholy theme in the third movement (Romanza) which the composer adapted from music used in Fellini’s “La Strada”.


Mario Folena (flute) & Benedetto Lupo (piano)

Orchestra Sinfonica Siciliana, Massimo De Bernart

This disc pays homage to the concert and symphonic work of Nino Rota, a composer who is mostly known for his outstanding film scores including the unforgettable music of the “Godfather” movies. It features a piano concerto and a symphony based around a love song.
