19 Jan 2018
Resonus Classics is pleased to announce a nomination in the BBC Music Magazine Awards 2018 for Fata Morgana: Song by Pavel Haas. Featuring a stellar line up of Anita Watson (soprano), Anna Starushkevych (mezzo-soprano), Nicky Spence (tenor), James Platt (bass), the Navarra Quartet, and Lada Valešová (piano & artistic director).
Having gained much critical acclaim so far (including a 'Choral & Song Choice' in BBC Music Magazine, this album attempts to bring greater prominence to the Czech composer Pavel Haas (1899-1944), who died both prematurely and cruelly during the Holocaust. The original BBC Music Magazine review states:'Pianist-musicologist Lada Valesova has gathered together a stellar group of young singers and musicians [...] From joy to despair, every emotion is here in subtle colours; a legacy of great human and musical worth.' The album was also named as 'Album of the Year 2017' by Europadisc.
