About this Recording

WISEMAN, D.: Different Voices (Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Wiseman)

‘“How about composing a new Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra?” suggested Ian Maclay, the General Manager of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. I’ve always loved composing for full symphony orchestra, so this was a challenge that simply had to be met! I conducted the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the first live performance at London’s Cadogan Hall with Hayley Westenra adding her special touch to the song and Stephen Fry narrating in his own inimitable fashion. The result of that live performance is this CD. It was a truly memorable and exciting experience, and I hope you enjoy listening to Different Voices as much as I enjoyed composing the piece.’ – Debbie Wiseman
