Touched by the Strings. Chorwerke mit Solovioline

Description

Solo violin and choir – a combination like a blank sheet of paper. On TOUCHED BY THE STRINGS, contemporary composers – Ola Gjeilo, Vytautas Miškinis, Knut Nystedt, John Høybye, and others – have supplied their answers to the question of how these protagonists can be brought together. The internationally renowned violinist Ida Bieler and the Orpheus Vokalensemble conducted by Michael Alber demonstrate the compositional range with impressive sensitivity and with a great variance of sonority.

Reviews

Each piece most definitely stands alone, yet one does not tire of listening to the anal¬ogous combination of colors due to its distinct characteristics. Touched by The Strings is a brilliant and dazzling recording.
Alan Denney, Choral Journal, Oktober 2019

 

As I said, this was a great idea. Everything worked.
Philip Greenfield, American Record Guide, 23.01.2018

 

Das Orpheus Vokalensemble singt ... mit dem schlanken und trotzdem brillanten Klang eines professionellen Kammerchores, mit dem Michael Alber feine dynamische Nuancen formt...
Marcus Stäbler, WDR 3, 07.09.2017

 

A most attractive programme of largely consonant, tonal works setting Biblical or religious texts with an emphasis on the prayerful, meditative and uplifting of spirit.
Records International, September 2017
