Notes & Reviews:

The Franco-Lebanese composer and poet Bechara El-Khoury was born in Beirut in 1957. A master of orchestration, El-Khoury draws on the rich palette of resources available to today's composers, putting into music, 'human nature and its passions.' This disc features the brilliant orchestral miniature, 'Dance of the Eagles, Op. 9,' works inspired by the poetry of Khalil Gibran (Image Symphonique and Suite symphonique), and two panels in a triptych dedicated to the dramatic events of the war in Lebanon, 'Lebanon in Flames,' and 'Requiem for Orchestra.'
