Chants, Hymns and Dances: Music of Gurdjieff & Tsabropoulos (2003)

Chants, Hymns and Dances - Music of Gurdjieff & Tsabropoulos (2003)
Classical | EAC (APE & CUE) | 216 MB

A fascinating new project by German cellist Anja Lechner and Greek pianist Vassilis Tsabropoulos, Chants, Hymns and Dances, could be subtitled “Music from the Crossroads of the World”. It is a project that blurs the dividing lines between East and West, between composition and arrangement and improvisation, and between contemporary and traditional music. At the centre of the repertoire are compositions by Tsabropoulos, which take as their inspirational starting point ancient Byzantine hymns, and music by the Armenian-born philosopher-composer Georges Ivanovitch Gurdjieff (c.1877-1949) which draws upon melodies and rhythms, both sacred and secular, of the Caucasus, the Middle East and Central Asia.

In collaboration with world-class musicians pianist Steven Philcox, violinist Marie Bérard, and violist Keith Hamm tenor Lawrence Wiliford brings his acclaimed interpretive skill in song to music of early 20th century England that is beautiful, humble, and intimate. This survey of sacred songs and hymns by Gustav Holst, his pupil Edmund Rubbra, and his lifelong friend and colleague Ralph Vaughan Williams, visits the melodic and sacred themes that are common among the three composers. It devotes particular attention to Rubbras songs, which are less well known than many by his two senior colleagues.
