Recensie

Ter nagedachtenis aan de verwoestende aardbeving in Sichuan componeerde Guan Xia een indrukwekkend en zeer toegankelijk requiem – het eerste Chinese. Hoewel het werk ruim honderd orkestleden, meer dan honderdvijftig koorzangers en vier solisten vereist, begin dit requiem zeer ingetogen. Xia combineert Chinese invloeden met westerse, wat op deze opname gereflecteerd wordt in de combinatie van het Chinese nationale koor en orkest en de zeer ervaren Franse dirigent Michel Plasson.


Guan Xia: Earth Requiem


Yao Hong (soprano), Liu Shan (mezzo soprano), Jin Yongzhe (tenor), Sun Li (baritone), He Wangjin (Qiang Flute) & Shen Fanxiu (organ)

China National Orchestra & Chorus, Michel Plasson

The “Earth Requiem” is a gigantic work performed and recorded in Beijing in May 2011 in remembrance of the devastating Sichuan earthquake in 2008.

This is the first Chinese Requiem ever composed

This massive work by renowned Chinese composer Guan Xia is scored for 100 instrumentalists, a choir of 150 singers, an organ and 4 vocal soloists.

The well-established China National Symphony Orchestra invited the legendary French conductor Michel Plasson, who has long had a close association with EMI Classics, to work on the project. This partnership between West and East gives the recording a universal breadth as well as an overarching theme: the Earth. The emotional strength of the work is empowered by its gargantuan scale.

A concert and press conference will be held in May 2013 in Beijing's National Centre for the Performing Arts to mark the 5th anniversary of the Sichuan Earthquake.
