New CD release: Pavel Haas “Fata Morgana”-includes a world premiere recording

I am delighted to share with you the exciting news of the forthcoming release of the new Pavel Haas CD Fata Morgana, which I have recorded with a group of outstanding musicians. The release date is 3rd of March on Resonus Classics:

” Resonus Classics is pleased to present this significant new recording of vocal works by the early-twentieth century Czech composer, Pavel Haas. Featuring four song cycles composed by Haas at various stages in his life, this captivating album includes the world premiere recording of Fata Morgana, Op. 6 – Haas’s first major work composed following studies with Leoš Janáček in 1922.

Pianist Lada Valešová is joined by an exceptional array of singers as well as the acclaimed Navarra Quartet in a vivid portrait of this neglected composer. The album is released on CD and in digital formats ranging from MP3 up to 24-bit studio quality master with a 28-page full-colour booklet also available as a PDF.”
