The Los Angeles Master Chorale and their Music Director, Grant Gershon, get ready to officially kick-off their 2012/2013 this coming Sunday. Among the music to be featured that night are works by Nico Muhly that they have previously recorded: Bright Mass with Canons and the West Coast premiere of A Good Understanding.
All that said, their season is already off to an auspicious start with the release on CD and MP3 download of their latest recording for Decca: ”Górecki – Miserere,” featuring three works by Polish composer Henryk Górecki: Lobgesong (“Hymn of Praise”), the title track, Miserere, and the major-label premiere of Pieśni Maryjne (“Marian Songs”). Their live performance of these works at the end of last season was stunning, and this recording faithfully captures it.
