MIDORI QUEYRAS GRUBINGER ORCHESTRE PHILHARMONIQUE DE RADIO FRANCE EOTVOS, MIDORI GOTO
This album is a live recording from a November 2014 performance of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France in honor of composer Peter Eotvos who was then celebrating his seventieth birthday.; These three concertos are world premiere recordings.; DoReMi is performed here by Midori, its dedicatee. Following DoReMi is Eotvos’ Cello Concerto Grosso, and Speaking Drums.; All three of these works show a compositional genius in Peter Eotvos, and the theatrical performances by the musicians, particularly in Speaking Drums, provide an invaluable listening experience.
