The Siren's Call
This CD is a live concert recording of Chanticleer's 2012/13 Season opening concert, The Siren's Call. It was recorded in front of a live audience on September 14 & 16, 2012 at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
The seductive and irresistible songs of the sirens – sometimes fateful, sometimes fatal – fill Chanticleer’s 35th anniversary opener. Renowned Chinese composer Chen Yi sounds the call in her own inimitable language, and celebrated Irish composer Michael McGlynn channels the undeniable connection of Ireland and the sea that surrounds it. Other works by Bates, Gabrieli, Palestrina, Gesualdo, and more.
The concert features Vince Peterson's arrangement of Temptation, written by Tom Waits.
