Devotion and faith, no matter source, have always driven the arts. MusicaNova presents three works that beautifully reflect the fusion of spiritual and secular inspiration.
The selections on this program were inspired from an array of sources. Akshaya Avril Tucker blends Western and Indian music in a way never heard before. Edmund Rubbra was a devout Catholic but also a devotee of Catholic mystic and scientist Teilhard de Chardin. César Franck was just as devout but inspired to write secular music by the charms of Eros.
Recorded live January 6, 2019 at the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix, Arizona
