Following the success of their groundbreaking 2015 album, Twisted Skyscape, conductor Shea Lolin and composer/producer Christopher Hussey
have returned to Prague to record with the Czech Philharmonic Wind Ensemble, carefully curating an album of premiere recordings spotlighting the woodwind orchestra, capturing its kaleidoscopic
colours and symphonic potential in order to deepen and broaden appreciation of the medium’s power.
A large chamber ensemble of flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons and saxophones in various sizes, the woodwind orchestra has a highly adaptable and
magical tonal palette—it can be, in turn, boldly vibrant and delicately beautiful, thrillingly powerful and hauntingly tender, earnestly solemn and joyously comical.
The recorded repertoire reflects a spectrum of musical styles that exist in 21st-century concert music, ranging from the familiar and instantly
singable to the more avant-garde, but always possessing an accessible and inviting musical narrative.
Chromosphere is a landmark album, comprising exciting new and reimagined pieces by leading composers in the genre and demonstrating the
unique soundworld of the woodwind orchestra.
Chromosphere will be released in autumn 2023. This recording has been signed to the Divine Art lablel, where you will be able to
purchuase a copy upon release.
