The Symphonic Orchestra of the National Philharmonic „SERGHEI LUNCHEVICI” of the Republic of Moldova presents the new album CHISINAU 2. The outstanding album includes 8 world premiere recordings by 8 contemporary composers: Gregg Birrel, Lars Michael Fetzek, Brian Field, Scott Brickman, Satoru Ikeda, Daniele Ciminiello, Giorgos Papamitrou and Louis Sauter.

Noah, by Gregg Birrell, is a piece that carries significant meaning for the composer, who wrote it for the newborn son of two very close friends. Scored for a large orchestra, it draws on folk traditions and classic romanticism to create an exciting and joyous blend of rhythm and melody. Symphonic Movement on a Variously Fragmented Theme, by Lars Michael Fetzek states a theme in fragmented form, then delivers several strict canons of increasing complexity upon differently fragmented forms of the theme inverted in pitch and/or time. In Kaleidoscope, Brian Field features a constantly changing and evolving musical landscape that is heavily pattern based, shifting across instrumental families, meters and dynamics. In Psaume, Satoru Ikeda analizes a picture taken by a gigantic astronomical telescope, a phenomenon can be recognized: The faraway light is the past light. The further it is past, the more it darkens. Symphony #3 (Baltic Poem), by Scott Brickman, was inspired by my travels to Latvia and Lithuania, and in anticipation of their celebration of the centennial Independences of 1918. Fantasia #1, by Daniele Ciminiello, is an important milestone in a personal research of a synthesis between all composer's musical experiences. Giorgos Papamitru was inspired by a small village in the desert of Iran called abarkooh. And in last work of the album, Louis Sauter describes his visit in Saint-Pétersbourg.
