ECM CD Release Concert: The Crossing and PRISM Play “The Fifth Century”
PRISM joins Maestro Donald Nally and The Crossing (choir) at Trinity Church Wall Street in NYC for a CD release concert celebrating the world premiere recording of Gavin Bryars’ “The Fifth Century” on ECM.
FROM THE CROSSING’s WEBSITE:
To celebrate the release of our all-Bryars recording on ECM Records, we reprise The Fifth Century, Gavin’s elegiac, forty-minute reflection on Thomas Traherne’s Centuries of Meditations. Our audiences were deeply moved by this beautiful work, premiered in 2014, and its masterful interweaving of the colors of saxophones and voices. Our friends at PRISM join us again for this New York premiere.
With Gavin’s Two Love Songs for women and Estonian composer Tõnu Kõrvits’ Hymns from the Western Coast.
The Fifth Century, with The Crossing and PRISM, will be released by ECM records in 2016.
