Introduction: If such a high professional and on world level singing Male Choir joints together with "Singphoniker".... than you will have the guarantee of a star hour "art of singing"! My "Symphonic Poem" was realized in all shades: based on the dark and mystical sounds of the church organ you'll find all complex moods between joy of life and pain & grief. The visual world of a William Blake needs on one side a nearly religious ecstasy, on the other side a very earthy and vital musicality. Both worlds - the transcendent and the earthbound - are combined perfectly by the Taipei male Choir and the Singphoniker.....
Additional remarks: press info cpo-label:
Together with the most famous vocal ensemble "Singphoniker" the Taipei Male Choir presents - conducted by Nieh Yen-Hsiang - contemporary music for Soloists and male choir.
