BAKER, C.: Piano Concerto, "From Noon to Starry Night" / Aus Schwanengesang (M.-A. Hamelin, Indianapolis Symphony, Varga, Mena)

Award-winning and much decorated composer Claude Baker here entwines his evocative soundworld with the powerful imagery of two great poets. Recorded in its première performance with Marc-André Hamelin as soloist, the Piano Concerto From Noon to Starry Night’ draws on and amplifies the structures and meanings of five poems by Walt Whitman, expressing the heroism and darkness of war, exuberant celebrations of nature and a wistful ‘remembrance of things past.’ Aus Schwanengesang is a memorial piece that expands and ‘re-composes’ the poignant Heine Lieder from Schubert’s song cycle with oblique and multi-layered references.
