About the album

'•The first CD release featuring music from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales’ inaugural Composer in Residence, Guto Pryderi Puw.
• This dual-language release in both Welsh and English features a range of orchestral works inspired by stories and landscapes of Wales. Jav van Steen conducts.'
Orkestwerken geïnspireerd door de verhalen en het landschap van Wales
Guto Pryderi Puw is vandaag de dag een van de meest opwindende componisten uit Wales, en was de eerste Huiscomponist die van 2006 tot 2010 door het BBC National Orchestra of Wales werd aangesteld. Dit album met zijn eerste opnames is dan ook het hoogtepunt en erfgoed van deze samenwerking, en een hoorbaar bewijs van zijn voordelen.

Dit album bevat een aantal orkestwerken geïnspireerd door de verhalen en landschappen van Wales. Reservoirs is gebaseerd op het gelijknamige gedicht van R. S. Thomas, dat reflecteert op het laten onderlopen van een aantal valleien in Wales om de steden in Engeland in de tweede helft van de 20e eeuw van water te voorzien. De muziek benadert het gedicht vanuit twee hoeken: het belicht het indrukwekkende en pittoreske beeld van het reservoir en het omliggende landschap, en het echte conflict en de tragedie die onder het kalme wateroppervlak verborgen liggen. De rustige langzame delen suggereren een pittoresk landschap terwijl de meedogenloze drijfkracht van het ritme in de snellere delen de littekens van het land en de verdronken gemeenschappen verklanken.

BBC National Orchestra of Wales

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales (BBC NOW) is one of the UK’s most versatile orchestras, with a varied range of work as both a broadcast orchestra and national sym- phony orchestra of Wales. The orchestra’s adventurous programming is driven by principal conductor Thomas Søndergård and conductor laureate Tadaaki Otaka; the Welsh composer Huw Watkins is the orchestra’s composer-in-association. Generously supported by the Arts Council of Wales, and part of BBC Wales, BBC NOW is orchestra-in-residence at Cardiff’s St David’s Hall, and performs a busy series of live concerts throughout Wales and the UK, with almost all of its performances heard on the BBC. BBC NOW appears biennially at BBC Cardiff Singer of the World and annually at the BBC Proms....

BBC NOW appears biennially at BBC Cardiff Singer of the World and annually at the BBC Proms. Autumn 2015 saw one of its most ambitious tours as the orchestra visited South America, including a community residency celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Welsh settlement in Patagonia.

The orchestra’s home is BBC Hoddinott Hall, a world-class concert hall and recording studio based in the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff Bay, where BBC NOW continues its work as the UK’s foremost soundtrack orchestra.
