Descripción del producto

The critically acclaimed, Arizona-based Phoenix Chorale (formerly Phoenix Bach Choir) originally focused on music of the Renaissance and baroque periods, but today is equally dedicated to the creation and performance of new music. On this disc the Choir performs choral works, and settings of sacred texts by the Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo. When he first heard Gjeilos Ubi caritas, Charles Bruffy was instantly hooked, finding the music refreshing and magnetic. Bruffy brought Gjeilos music to the Chorale and its audiences, and the response was immediate. Soon after, Gjeilo was invited to be the Chorales first Composer-in-Residence. Phoenix, a setting of the Agnus Dei, is dedicated to Charles Bruffy and the Phoenix Chorale in honour of its fiftieth anniversary. When Gjeilo first visited the choir in Arizona, he had never been to the desert before, and the quiet beauty and barrenness of the landscape moved him deeply. He describes Phoenix as symphonic in nature one of those pieces where the text is very much the servant of the music, not the other way around. In contrast, Northern Lights takes its inspiration from Gjeilos homeland, Norway, and the terrible beauty of the natural phenomenon that may be observed there. The music reflects the powerful and electric quality of the northern lights, which must have seemed both mesmerising and terrifying to people in the past when no one knew what they were, and superstition prevailed. The Phoenix Chorale made its first appearance on Chandos in 2004 with Shakespeare in Song. Since then it has released several joint recordings with its sister choir, the Kansas Chorale, featuring among others Alexander Grechaninovs Passion Week, the disc nominated for a Grammy in no fewer than four categories, including Best Classical Album and Best Choral Performance, winning in the Best Engineered and Classical album categories.

Opinión

**** The 27 professional voices of Arizona-based Phoenix Chorale under Charles Bruffy paint limpid washes of sound with polished intonation, ensemble and balance. --Choir and Organ, Mar/Apr'12

The Phoenix Chorale is superb throughout the collection...beutifully sung and recorded collection of music for very easy listening indeed. --IRR,Apr'12

The Phoenix Chorale and associated performers do not put a foot wrong.Chandos's SACD sound is marvellous. --Gramophone,May'12

Warm appeasing choral music by the Norwegian Ola Gjeilo, with occasional instrumental support.Mainly mellow in tone, though Night of the Soul strikes deeper. *** --BBC Music Magazine, June'12

Alison Chaney (soprano), Ola Gjeilo (piano), Ted Belledin (tenor saxophone), la Phoenix Chorale dirigida por Charles Bruffy y el Harrington String Quartet grabaron en Mayo de 2011 en Camelback Bible Church, Paradise Valley, Arizona The Ground este SACD híbrido multicanal de 59:43 minutos de duración (que contiene un libreto con textos y traducciones al inglés, francés y alemán) el siguiente programa de música del noruego Ola Gjeilo: (Pleni sunt caeli); Serenity (O magnum mysterium); Ubi caritas; Northern Lights (Pulchra es, amica mea); Dark Night of the Soul; The Spheres (Kyrie eleison); Tota pulchra es; Prelude (Exsultate, jubilate); Phoenix (Agnus Dei); Unicornis captivator y Evening Prayer.

Gjeilo tiene una empatía especial para las texturas corales y una habilidad para escribir composiciones de sonido transparente ideales para un coro profesional y parece que las piezas que involucran solo al coro son más exitosas que aquellas que requieren de un grupo instrumental. La música es generalmente muy bella y parece inspirarse ocasionalmente en fenómenos naturales como la aurora boreal (que da título al álbum). Aunque priman las construcciones simples (que tienen un cierto aire al Medioevo) y meditativas a tempi lentos o muy moderados, también hay otras como 'Unicornis captivator' que exhiben texturas ligeras, ritmos de danza y métrica irregular que el coro canta robustamente con una precisión muy profesional. El sonido es extraordinariamente bueno.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Superb Baltic Choral music by a Norwegian in America 4 de abril de 2012
Por Michael Roof - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: CD de audio Compra verificada
I love this CD. In the past several monthes, like many others, I have become a huge fan of Baltic choral music. I've always loved choral music by most of the "classical" greats of all eras, but this contemporary a cappella music is something very new to me. I don't have the technical wherewithall to know why; but for some reason, the Baltic composers seem to have something that others are lacking; a depth, a melancholy, an ability to carry the listener away. Whatever that magic is, Ola Gjeilo, a Norwegian transplanted to America, has it. All of the tracks are wonderful; however, track number 2, "Serenity" is one of those rare, transcendant works that music lovers pine for. Complex, simple, and occasionally even cloying, it reveals more in 5 minutes than most composers can say in a lifetime. That's quite an accomplishment for a 21st, or even last half of the 20th century, composer. Performance, engineering and ambience are perfect. I haven't heard Baltic choral music performed more "Baltically" than this. Highly recommended to Baltic fans - you know who you are.

I am a long-time fan of the Phoenix Chorale and when I heard they were teaming up with Ola Gjeilo I knew it would be a perfect match. And it is. Choral music surely doesn't get much better than this; both the music and the performers are exquisite. But I must warn you. Be careful what you're doing while listening to this CD, at least the first time around, as you will want to give it your full attention. Driving a car is definitely not recommended, as I learned to my horror. (This will turn out to be the most expensive CD I've ever purchased! Good thing my husband loves the Phoenix Chorale, too.) Pour yourself a glass of wine, sit back, and just listen to the gorgeous voices of the Phoenix Chorale as they make magic with Ola Gjeilo. Five stars is not enough!

I've never been a huge fan of choral music. However, I heard some of this CD on my XM radio and decided to explore it. I heard enough of the remaining bands to convince me to add it to my collection. I've been collecting music in some form or other for over 60 years. I have a huge classical collection of all types, plus over 40 operas, songs, solo instrumentals; additionally, jazz, rock - you name it. I have all my vinyl, 45s, tapes, CD's MP3s on my iPod. So, I don't add new things readily. After receiving it, I listened to this recording at least 5 times, loaded it into my iTunes library and listened on ear buds. This is so soothing, relaxing and beautiful, evocative of the undulating Northern Lights of the title. 'Dark Night of the Soul' and 'The Spheres' are especially lovely.

In addition, this recording was beautifully engineered with no irritating changes in dynamic range so common on CDs (it's so soft you can't hear it and gets so loud it blows you out of your chair - ever get one of those?) And if you like to read, this is wonderful background music as well. Definitely at 5-star recording.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Ola Gjello at his best! 22 de octubre de 2013
Por Milton S. Twain - Publicado en Amazon.com
Compra verificada
This is a wonderful album that puts the superb Phoenix Chorale together with the original compositions of Ola Gjelo. The album recording standards are superior, and the whole package is a joy.

I met Ola a few years ago. He is a phenomenal pianist and composer of piano and choral works, and a very nice, approachable man who comes across as being extremely humble and genuine. He performed his piano accompaniment to his commissioned work "Tundra" at the ACDA National Women's honor chorus and never drew attention to himself. Very few in the audience probably realized that he was the composer of the piece--which was superb.

This album of his choral works is truly worth the price x 4! Everything about it is a delight.
5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Sublime choral music from an important modern composer. Stellar sonics. 14 de junio de 2014
Por Joseph Kline PhD, MD - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: CD de audio Compra verificada
Ola Gjeilo is a contemporary composer with whom I am just becoming familiar. I recently reviewed his album, Stone Rose, and found it to be evidence of an extremely talented composer. In the present album, the Phoenix Chorale performs 11 works of sacred music composed by Gjelio on a Chandos hybrid SACD. The music was recorded in 2011. Some of the pieces are a a cappella and a few are accompanied by Gjeilo on piano or Gjelio and the Harrington String Quartet.

These works are uniformly stellar modern compositions with modern harmonies and frequent dissonances. They are also uniformly sublime, each one seemingly more beautiful than the last. Many of the compositions are pop-sacred or crossover, i.e. readily enjoyable by those who would not describe themselves as classical music lovers. Others are more serious, more like sacred music in the classical vein. Gjeilo's writing for string quartet frequently has an urgent quality to it. This is choral music that is never dull or boring.

I find Gjeilo's music absolutely sublime, and much more interesting than that of another contemporary choral composer, Cooman, who can be quite dull at times. If you haven't heard Gjeilo's music yet, you are in for such a treat. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
