Sommer: Vocal Symphony/Klusák: First Invention/Fišer: 15 Prints
KHCD-2012-066DL (STEREO) - Vladimir Sommer: Vocal Symphony(Nancy Williams, mezzo-soprano; Peter Ustinov, narrator); Jan Klusák: First Invention; Luboš Fišer: 15 Prints after Dürer's "Apocalypse" - London Symphony Orchestra & Ambrosian Singers/Igor Buketoff - Music composed during the mid-60s, recorded by RCA in 1971. The Vocal Symphony of Sommer is representative of that composer's preoccupation with the drama of life, its tensions and conflicts. Jan Klusák's First Invention is scored for 17 solo players, and title suggests the musical freedom the composer wished to express, rather than emulating Bach. Luboš Fišer's 15 Prints after Dürer's "Apocalypse" progresses along precisely determined time indications, but allows considerable freedom of interpretation by the players. Produced by customer request; thanks to Glen Gill for suggesting this reissue.
