WINTER & WINTER 2016 | 910 240-2
The composer and cellist Ernst Reijseger presents his first symphonic poem, The Volcano Symphony , written for the Spanish baroque orchestra Forma Antiqva, directed by Aaron Zapico.
Fascinated by the unstoppable power of flowing lava, hell, the explosion of elementary forces and the creation of a new and vigorous life, Reijseger describes the magma and its effects, this mass of molten rocks that leave the bowels of the earth , explode, destroy, fertilize and introduce the birth of a new life.
The soprano Eugenia Boix embodies the voice of Pele, the goddess of volcanoes according to Hawaiian belief.
