Corigliano, John – “Conjurer/Vocalise” – [Naxos World]

To John corigliano the problem with writing a percussion concerto was that “the very thing that makes it the perfect accent to other orchestral sonorities makes it unsatisfactory when it takes the spotlight in a concerto.” To write Conjurer, he distilled his concept into wood, metal, and skin. Profoundly deaf Scottish percussion Master Dame Evelyn Glennie introduces the 3 choirs via cadenzas which are taken up by the orchestra.
In Vocalise, a singer and Philharmonic Orchestra begin acoustically and amplification and electronics are introduced.
