Notes and Editorial Reviews

The sun, the moon, the stars and the planets, the universe beyond them….composers have always been fascinated by their seductive power. Our newest explorations will be from Berkeley-based Composer-DJ Mason Bates in a world premiere about transmissions from outer space and “Cells Planets” by Erica Lloyd of Little Grey Girlfriend in a new arrangement especially for Chanticleer. Fantastic early works by Monteverdi, Marenzio and Palestrina and romantic works by Schumann (“An die Sterne”) and Mahler (“Ich bin der welt…”) will join music of 20th century composers Britten, Mechem, Hopkins (“Past Life Melodies”) Gershwin and others.
