Charlotte Bray’s Where Icebergs Dance Away commissioned by Westdeutscher Rundfunk for WDR Sinfonieorchester was recorded on Wednesday 31 March, conducted by Cristian Măcelaru. The premiere will be broadcast as a live radio performance in WDR 3 Tonart on Friday 28/05 between 3 and 4pm (German time).
About the work, Bray says;
I strive to portray the light and beauty of the icy landscape glistening in the sun, exploring musically the contradictory nature of glaciers- stable yet fragile. My work is part influenced by the incredible artwork of Zaria Forman, who paints in pastels from photos taken of icescapes, particularly her work entitled ‘Disco Bay’, also a place I found inspiring during a visit in 2016.
More details about the broadcast of this recording are coming soon.
Composers Edition is proud to publish Where Icebergs Dance Away, as well as other works by Charlotte Bray.
