African Heritage Symphonic Series, Vol. III

I’ve chosen this week’s free download track by Michael Abels both to mark the start of summer this Thursday (June 21) and to celebrate the world premiere last Thursday of a new work that Cedille Records commissioned from the composer, titled Winged Creatures. The new work is scored for flute, clarinet, and orchestra, and was performed by Demarre and Anthony McGill with the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra conducted by Allen Tinkham. The premiere took place in Chicago’s Orchestra Hall as part of this year’s League of American Orchestras annual conference and was part of the musicians’ preparations for this past weekend’s recording sessions of an entire album of works for flute, clarinet, and orchestra to be released next spring.

Abels’ 1990 composition Global Warming, heard here, references the dangerous heating of our planet but also celebrates the mixing of different world cultures. The track comes from African Heritage Symphonic Series, Volume III (our CD of the Week, 25% OFF this week only), with Paul Freeman conducting the Chicago Sinfonietta in late-20th century works by four different African-American composers.

Happy Listening,
