Mysterious, mellow, smooth

Overview

Conductor Daniel Blendulf
Soloist Pablo Ferrandez, cello 
Chorus Canticum Chamber Choir

Skipworth Spiritus
Debussy Nocturnes
Dvořák Concerto in B minor for Cello and Orchestra

‘I want to take listeners to a place that’s kind of familiar but also unsettling,’ says Australian composer Lachlan Skipworth about Spiritus, an exploration of the psychological and primal impact of the wind. Stylistically, the music glimmers with transparency, fresh harmonies and inventive timbral blends. Dream in Debussy’s impressionistic Nocturnes, where a women’s wordless chorus contributes another skein of luminous colour in these stunning forays into light and shade. Championed by numerous cello greats, Dvořák’s soulful concerto radiates tuneful glory. Branded the ‘greatest’ by music lovers, the ingenious scoring ensures the cello’s sorrowful voice is always distinctly heard.
