Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 5-7 working days
Tales of the Glens is a journey through Ireland's Glens of Antrim, as depicted in Anthony Capparelli's piano album of compositions by Philip Hammond. Inspired by years of immersing himself in Celtic and Scandinavian traditions, Capparelli's collection beautifully captures the essence of this picturesque region. Teaming up with acclaimed composer Philip Hammond, Capparelli aimed to create an album that not only honours the spirit of the Glens but also transcends musical genres. Through thematic resonance and evocative melodies, each composition pays tribute to the people, folklore, and landscapes that have left an indelible mark. The album features selections from "Miniatures and Modulations," showcasing Hammond's innovative interpretations of traditional harp tunes. From the whimsical charm of "The Little and Great Mountain" to the poignant allure of "Open the Door Softly," listeners can experience these ancient melodies in a fresh light. The centrepiece of the album is an innovative multi-movement work for pianist and storyteller titled Tales from the Sea of Moyle. A collaboration between Anthony Capparelli, Philip Hammond, and two of Ireland’s most renowned bearers of the storytelling tradition, Liz Weir MBE and Colin Urwin, this work tests the boundaries of collaboration between art forms. Each story is set along the Antrim coast and delivered by the commanding voices of Weir and Urwin, offering the listener guidance, and sometimes warning, on their journey.
