At the forefront of contemporary music for over six decades, Thea Musgrave is one of the leading composers of her generation. She has conducted many of her own pieces on both sides of the Atlantic. Her vividly imaginative and well-crafted scores resonate with audiences worldwide. Fellow composer Judith Weir has astutely ascribed Musgrave’s exceptionally rich and varied catalogue of works to a capacity for constant self-renewal combined with a shrewd awareness of what is currently happening in musical style. This release features three of Musgrave’s works: Phoenix Rising (1997), Loch Ness: A Post Card from Scotland (2012), and Poets in Love (2009). Each of these works is receiving here its world premiere recording.

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
