In October 2010, Aurora visited Snape in Suffolk to record Nico Muhly’s music for chamber orchestra. The project marked the culmination of a relationship with Muhly which started three years earlier, with the orchestra’s commissioning Muhly to write the concerto for electric violin Seeing is Believing. The recording will be released on Decca Classics on 7 June 2011.
Take a look at the film below for a special behind-the-scenes look at the project, with recording session footage and interviews with composer, artists and producer John Rutter. And keep an eye on this blog for details of an exciting launch event at Kings Place planned for early May, to be announced at the start of next week.
Seeing is Believing was supported by an Aldeburgh residency.
