Light and Gold
Light and Gold (Decca 2743209)
SKU: 16316
AU $23.50

Label: Decca Cat. No.: 2743209 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

Eric Whitacre (b. 1970), accomplished composer, conductor and lecturer, is one of the most popular and performed composers of his generation. His published works “of which Sleep, Cloudburst, Lux Aurumque and Water Night are among the most popular in the modern repertoire, have sold over a million copies worldwide. Paradise Lost: Shadows and Wings, Eric's cutting-edge musical, has won the ASCAP Harold Arlen award, the prestigious Richard Rodgers Award and 10 Ovation Award nominations. In the US he is greeted with rock star adulation¯ (New York Times) and his Virtual Choir projects have given him a worldwide following on YouTube, marking a new digital age for classical music. In 2010 he signed to Decca, and is published by Chester Music.

Light and Gold is a mixture of works from the Whitacre catalogue alongside three World Premiere recordings of new pieces, all of them freshly recorded for the occasion. It's the perfect gateway through which new listeners can experience the allure of Whitacre's music for the first time, while giving existing fans pristine new recordings of some of his most successful pieces, tailored by the composer himself. "This album is the first time that I've ever conducted on record my interpretations of my own pieces," Whitacre explains. "The new pieces haven't been recorded before. Previous recordings of the older works have always been nice, but they've never been exactly what I was hoping they would be. That's the most interesting part for me; it's finally a chance to say it the way I'd like to say it." The pieces on the disc are performed by the British chamber choir, Laudibus, alongside Whitacre's newly-created vocal group, the Eric Whitacre Singers.
