NATIONAL GALLERY COLLECTION: BRITISH CLASSICS (CD)

NATIONAL GALLERY COLLECTION: BRITISH CLASSICS
  • Niezależnie od tego, czy tworzona była dla uświetnienia wielkich okazji, ku radości prostego ludu czy w służbie kościoła, muzyka odgrywała znaczącą role w kształtowaniu brytyjskiej tożsamości. 2-płytowy album prezentuje bogactwo dzieł, stanowiących najważniejsze filary brytyjskiego repertuaru od majestatycznego Zadok the Priest Handela do melancholijnego koncertu wiolonczelowego Elgara. Muzykę dopełnia wybór portretów i pejzaży pochodzących ze zbiorów National Gallery – ukazujących kwintesencję brytyjskości poprzez tematykę i styl, stworzone przez wiodących brytyjskich malarzy XVIII i XIX w.
