Product details

17 years after the release to wide critical acclaim of David Joseph's album Selected Works Volume 2. Now, Works for String Orchestra presents previously un-released recordings gloriously remastered for this new album.

More than a walk down memory lane, these recordings present works that have not been previously released to the public and amply demonstrate Joseph's evocative and vivid compositional style.

In 1990 David Joseph was introduced to Spiros Rantos who invited David to write a work for the Melbourne Chamber Orchestra for which Spiros was then the Musical Director. Spiros suggested Michael Kieran Harvey to be soloist in the proposed Chamber Concerto. This association with Michael resulted in two further works: Concerto for Piano and Orchestra (1996) commissioned by the MSO, and a solo piano work Rhapsody (1998) written for the Albert H Maggs Award.

Written in 1991/92, the Chamber Concerto is comprised of three movements, performed here by the Melbourne Chamber Orchestra, Spiros Rantos (conductor), and Michael Kieran Harvey (piano) which is the opening piece on the album. It is followed by Scheherazade written for the Zagreb Soloists at the invitation of the Zagreb International Music Biennale in 1999, and Dialogues (1992) for solo Violin and Strings, written at the invitation of Urs Walker for the Ripieno Kammerorchester of Winterthur in Switzerland.
