To Aeneas


„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.

Gilead Mishory: Psalmus

Christophorus Records, Freiburg, 03/2015

The German Chamber Choir ("Deutscher Kammerchor") commissioned by Gilead Mishory the three-movement piece "Wasserpsalm" (Waterpsalm), for choir a-capella in eight voices, and included it, in a first recording, in its new CD with various psalm-compositions, i.a. by Schubert, Mendelssohn and Schönberg. The three movements are based on the different associations of water in David's psalms, and are sung in Hebrew.
