Górecki_Symphony_No._3_Artwork.jpg

The Genesis Orchestra, led and conducted by Yordan Kamdzhalov, have collaborated with renowned vocal artist and composer Lisa Gerrard for a new recording of Henryk Górecki’s Symphony No. 3, also known as the Symphony of Sorrowful Songs.

Originally written for performance by a solo soprano, the three movements have been lovingly reworked and rearranged to suit Lisa Gerrard’s deeper register, creating an other-worldly and completely unique rendition of the piece.

When Yorden Kamdzhalov (Maestro of the Genesis Orchestra and Choir) suggested the somewhat daunting and intriguing challenge of visiting Gorecki’s Songs Of Sorrows, I almost fainted delightfully with surprise. Not only was the work usually completely out of my range, the libretto was written in Polish, but how could I resist Yorden’s completely innocent belief in which at that time seemed to be impossible. On we went relentlessly into the ever widening circular pools of Gorecki’s inner despair, a poignantly humbling departure from hope where only the long winding shadowing strings and softly hallowing woodwinds lead us trustingly through a beautifully agonizing acceptance of our inevitability. - Lisa Gerrard

Hiraeth Album Cover.jpg

Besant Hall Records, sub-label of Air-Edel Records, released 'Hiraeth' by Lisa Gerrard and David Kuckhermann in August 2018. ‘Hiraeth’,the welsh word meaning “longing for the place where your spirit lives”, is an accomplished presentation of eclectic rhythms from around the world.  Ambient textures of electronics and strings are teamed with an airy, ghostly wash of vocals from Lisa Gerrard resulting in a powerful and unique sound. Hiraeth received a Grammy nomination for 'Best New Age Album'.

“It has been a dream in my heart for such a long time to embrace and enfold a tribe of like minded kindred spirits. A place to unlock and deliver the three dimensional desire to create a bridge of uncensored connectivity. Creating sounds in a state of surrender that defy the persons of judgment and academia and allow us to embrace each other devoid of division and confusion. You are so very welcome to share in this labour of love for it is all for you.”  - Lisa Gerrard

DCD_Dion_album.jpg

PIAS Recordings have released 'Dionysis' by Dead Can Dance in November 2018.  

Musically, Dionysus is an impressive and ambitious amalgam of the band's previous leanings like the sampled and kaleidoscopic nature of Into the Labyrinth (4AD, 1993) and the percussion dominated Spiritchaser. (4AD, 1998). There are no songs here in a classical sense as it was done on their previous records. The song format was completely eschewed as a concept. Divided in two compositions that are further subdivided into several movements, the duo took the constituent elements of some of its past and further refined them into an enormous sound bathed in a myriad of melodies and polyrhythms. Each of these acts and their movements has distinct moods and ambiances that reveal varied soundworlds with fresh nuances and facets with each new listen. As a result, Dead Can Dance creates a non-linear, genre-less concoction that merges tribal beats, ambient sounds, folk instruments like bagpipes, Bulgarian choirs, dulcimers, highly-manipulated samples into a decontextualized whole, an idea that is close to composer and conceptualist Jon Hassell's concepts of Fourth World Music. As a result, literally, the listener is transmuted in both geography and dimension.  -  All About Jazz
