Henryk Gorecki (1933-2010) became best known for his Third Symphony, the ‘Symphony of Sorrowful Songs’ that became a hit in the 1990s, tapping into a new hunger in the listening public for serious new music that was nonetheless melodically inspired and spiritual in sensibility. These qualities can be readily discerned in much of the rest of his small and fastidious output. The Kleines Requiem für eine Polka (1993) is itself at once a profoundly serious work and a curiously elusive one, a blend of warm expressive directness with almost Brechtian alienation. It is scored for a chamber ensemble: like Henze’s late masterpiece, it is an instrumental Requiem, in which words are felt to be otiose to the direct expression of grief and consolation.

Castle Canyon - Gods of 1973 (2009)

Cosmos Music (France), March 1, 2010 - Olivier Pelletant's review:
OK, the title of this album is rather plain and cover most 'cheap', but damn that its content is good! Castle Canyon is a American group, totally unknown, but has yet cracked shortly in the early 70s. A long tunnel over 30 years and a resurrection later….. Gods Of 1973 Thus, a progressive instrumental 'seventies' of very high bill, dominated by the full panoply of keyboards 'vintage' supported by an impeccable rhythm section and guitar more discreet but no less perfect. To clarify further, there may well sure to add that Castle Canyon sometimes evokes ELP, Trace and other Quill, but his personality is such that the Gods of 1973 made very quickly forget sake of rapprochement on the part of the listener. A treat!

I well remember reviewing one of the first recordings, possibly the first in the West, of Górecki's hypnotising 3rd Symphony (Stefania Woytowicz with the Berlin Radio Symphony orchestra, conducted by Wlodzimierz Kamirski (Schwann CD 11615 (Koch-Schwann SCH 361-302)). I can remember my excitement at such a simple, yet moving, work. These folksong arrangements are in the same mould as the Symphony – slow and quiet, simple and direct. They are very beautiful. They’re neither as complex, nor as demanding, as either Szeroka Woda (Broad Waters), op.39 (1979) or Wislo moja, Wislo szara (My Vistula, Grey Vistula), op.46 (1981), but in their own way they are affecting ………This is a most interesting and satisfying disk and it’s good to hear such fine choral singing.

Label: Chandos | Tracks: 17 | Rls.date: 2017

As well as being one of the 20th century's supreme orchestral composers, Sibelius produced around 100 songs. Yet he wrote very little original music for voice and orchestra. The shining exception is Luonnotar, for soprano and orchestra, which is one of his greatest achievements in any genre, but nothing else in his vocal output comes close to matching that work's dramatic power and originality.

Style: New Age, World, Classical Crossover | Label: Domo Records

Symphony of My Dreams is Franci’s first domestic release through Domo Records. It’s produced by Brazilian Maestro Amilson Godoy and American producer/engineer Gary Barlough; arrangement was done by pianist Marinho Boffa and Brian Becvar. She penned lyrics for Kitaro’s songs that previously were only instrumentals, like “Symphony of Dreams” and “KOI”. With assistance from Mauro Malavasi (former producer for Andrea Bocelli), Franci also put words to her own melodies like “Strella”. Although Kitaro is known for his work with Asian sounds, Symphony of my Dreams possesses a fantastical, European sound thanks to the team of string players backing Franci’s voice. This light, airy album will be a great addition to your music collection.
