Giacinto Scelsi: Canti del Capricorno

Album Summary

>Scelsi, Giacinto : Canti del capricorno
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Michiko Hirayama was the sole inspiration for Scelsi's twenty-part cycle Canti del Capricorno, written between 1962 and 1972. To this day the Japanese singer is a unique performer of this spiritual yet energy-filled work for solo voice, with instrumental accompaniment for certain songs: This is Hirayama's second recording of the work for Wergo and is the first of the complete version. Accompanied by Jurgen Grozinger and his ensemble, Hirayama claims, at age 82, to have found the "right," path of interpretation.
