The first in a stunning collection of Eric Whitacre s choral works conducted for the first time by Eric himself and performed by The Eric Whitacre Singers, Laudibus and friends.
Water Night is the new album from the visionary composer behind the Virtual Choir and follows up his Grammy award-winning album, Light and Gold. The Daily Telegraph, London, describes Whitacre as "that rare thing, a modern composer who is both popular and original".
Crossover projects are the hallmark of the Sonux Ensemble. Together with the jazz-saxophonist Stefan Kuchel and the Sirius Quartet, the young men’s choir performs contemporary works. The Quartet members describe themselves as artists of improvisation who break out of the conventional vocabulary of sound for a string quartet. Most pieces on this CD were written especially for the Sonux Ensemble, and thus composed to the singers’ strengths. "We have worked on these pieces together with the composers, and given them their first performances over the course of the last five years. This disc features only world premiere recordings and, literally, unheard of choral music," the choir’s director Hans-Joachim Lustig notes.
If Eric Benet’s career can be defined by anything, it’s the purity of emotion. He’s consistently made music that speaks to love and speaks from the soul and on Lost In Time he does it once again. Featuring duets with Faith Evans, Chrisette Michele, Ledisi and the O’Jays Eddie Levert, Lost In Time is at once a sumptuous homage to and an expansion of the sweet soul of the 1970’s.
