SAUL, W.: Kiev 2014 / Violin Concerto / Overture for the Jubilee (Rong-Huey Liu, Buswell, Saul, Ukraine National Symphony, Kuchar)

Composer and pianist Walter Saul is the recipient of 24 ASCAP awards and numerous other honours. His mission as a composer is ‘to create musical icons, windows of sonic light’ which point towards Christian spirituality. Kiev 2014 reflects on Ukraine’s challenges, from the darkness of occupation towards hope and victory. The Violin Concerto is packed with numeric symbolism, while A Christmas Symphony paints four significant scenes from the Nativity. Saul’s Overture for the Jubilee explores the history of John Quincy Adams and the abolition of slavery. From Life to Greater Life celebrates the transformation to heavenly immortality, and the profound peace which concludes Metamorphosis stands witness to the inner peace granted to the composer through his faith.
