MCLEOD, J.: Emperor and the Nightingale (The) / 3 Celebrations / Rock Concerto (Medlyn, Albulescu, New Zealand Symphony, Grodd)

New Zealand-born composer Jenny McLeod’s wide musical background is here distilled into three works of highly enjoyable directness. The Emperor and the Nightingale is a colourful score which accompanies the narration of a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, and Three Celebrations conjures scenes of landscape and recreation familiar to New Zealanders. Performed by Grand Prix du Disque Liszt winning soloist Eugene Albulescu, the virtuoso Rock Concerto draws on popular music styles, placing these references in a strongly classical structure.
