Announcing two major releases!
I’m happy to announce two major releases from Trinity Wall Street, both premiere recordings made under the leadership of Julian Wachner.
The first is Julian Wachner: Symphony No. 1/Works for Orchestra and Voices, a three-CD set of the composer-conductor’s own works for orchestra and voices, recorded in downtown Manhattan’s Trinity Church with NOVUS NY – Trinity’s resident new-music orchestra – and the Choir of Trinity Wall Street. Not only will you hear the fabulous choir and orchestra, but also the Trinity Youth Chorus, who I continue to be proud of every year as they grow by leaps and bounds!
The second new release, Ralf Yusuf Gawlick: Missa gentis humanae, is a multilingual “Mass for the Human Race,” which augments the traditional Latin liturgy with passages about love drawn from Borges, Virgil, Brecht, Zbigniew Herbert, Dostoevsky, Plautus, Walter Scott, and the Gospel According to St. John, in a polyphonic a cappella setting for eight singers. This was an incredible project and I feel so lucky that I was able to premiere and record this work with my immensely talented colleagues.
