New CD

„To Aeneas“ is the title of Gilead Mishory’s new CD, published by NEOS. All three works in it refer to the myth of Dido and Aeneas: Muzio Clementi’s last piano sonata: „Didone Abbandonata“, Giuseppe Tartini’s  sonata for violin, in Mishory’s transcription for piano solo, as well as Mishory’s new cycle „To Aeneas“. The CD has already been broadcast by many radio-stations in Europe in the first weeks after its appearance. The “MDR-Figaro” said about Mishory’s cycle: “It is a suite of five movements, which expresses the whole emotional range: from solemn desperation to eruptive rage. Dido’s suicide becomes almost an acoustic film”. Read the booklet-interview with Simon A. Rosenbaum in which Gilead Mishory talks about his cycle and the programming of this CD.
