Danielpour: Talking To Aphrodite - Symphony For St
Label: NAXOS AMERICAN CLASSICS
Rachlevsky, Misha; Semyonov, Maxim; Russian String Orchestra; Shafer, Sarah; Pravilov, Evgeny
These three recordings cement the bond between the award-winning composer Richard Danielpour and the conductor Misha Rachlevsky, one of the composer’s most dedicated and perceptive interpreters. It was Rachlevsky who gave the American premiere of Symphony for Strings, a transcription of the Sixth String Quartet- a work saturated in farewells, complete with a hymn and variations. Talking to Aphrodite is the result of a collaboration between Danielpour and the writer Erica Jong, while Kaddish addresses the eternal issues of life, death and eventual peace.
