ArtistsPatricia Rozario (soprano)
Clio Gould (violin)
Scottish Ensemble performs a stunningly beautiful recording of remarkable pieces by John Tavener.
Originally released in 1998, 'Tavener: Tears of the Angels' has been re-issued as part of Linnís Echo series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best of the labelís award-winning catalogue.
Tavener wrote the extraordinarily moving ... Depart in Peace... following the death of his father. Written for soprano, violin, tampura and strings it features Eastern elements and a glittering setting of the Song of Simeon. Patricia Rozario and Clio Gould are outstanding soloists in this beautiful piece.
Clio Gouldís perfectly pitched and emotive violin playing takes centre stage in My Gaze is Ever upon You and Tears of the Angels.
John Tavener, who passed away in 2013, was described as one of Ďthe very best creative talents of his generationí by The Times. These compositions are among his finest.
Re-defining the string orchestra, Scottish Ensemble inspires audiences with vibrant and powerful performances. The ensemble is the UKís only professional string orchestra, built around a core of twelve outstanding string players. The ensemble is known both in the UK and internationally for its versatility and ambitious programming. Performing standing up, the individual layers bring an energetic and passionate dynamic to every performance.
"An exceedingly beautiful disc that I have no hesitation in making my record of the year." - Gramophone
"The title track and a work of ethereal stillness, is played with breathtaking control by Clio Gould, whose part resides ecstatically at the most precipitous heights of the violin...the performance of this exotic and bewitchingly beautiful composition [...Depart In Peace...] is mesmerising." - Hi-Fi Choice
"Linn's fine recording of the 12 crack players of the Scottish Ensemble provides the best of both worlds, a successful hybrid that can project the raw energy of the Allegro molto, for instance, more effectively than the bigger forces." - BBC Music Magazine
"A superb performance with outstanding playing." - Classic CD
