Notes & Reviews:

Scottish Ensemble performs a stunningly beautiful recording of remarkable pieces by John Tavener. Originally released in 1998 'Tavener: Tears of the Angels' has been re-issued as part of Linn's ECHO series which offers a second chance to enjoy the best of the label's award-winning catalogue. Tavener wrote the extraordinarily moving ...Depart in Peace... following the death of his father. Written for soprano, violin, tampura and strings it features Eastern elements and a glittering setting of the Song of Simeon; Patricia Rozario and Clio Gould are outstanding soloists in this beautiful piece. Clio Gould's perfectly pitched and emotive violin playing takes centre stage in My Gaze is Ever upon You and Tears of the Angels. John Tavener, who passed away in 2013, was described as one of 'the very best creative talents of his generation' by The Times; these compositions are among his finest. Re-defining the string orchestra, Scottish Ensemble inspires audiences with vibrant and powerful performances. Scottish Ensemble is the UK's only professional string orchestra, built around a core of twelve outstanding string players. The ensemble is known both in the UK and internationally for its versatility and ambitious programming. Performing standing up, the individual layers bring an energetic and passionate dynamic to every performance. Recent international engagements include concerts in Belgium, Austria, Turkey, Taiwan, China and an 11-date tour of the USA.
