ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“In Search of the Future of Music” is unusual album that brings Classical music into the 21st Century New Age Era. The album was created by two musicians from Kiev (Ukraine): the founder of Origen, Alexsey Zakharenko who arranged, performed and produced all the music and Tetiana Lubimenko (a.k.a. Milana) who performed all vocals for this album. At the end of 90’s, Zakharenko wrote some songs for the young singer Milana and later produced her debut album “They Beat a Women”. He was amazed by her ethereal voice and ability to sing from low bass to high soprano. Already at that time, she easily performed all the vocals of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and you can make certain of it by listening to this song on her first album “They Beat a Women”.
“In Search of the Future of Music” has a very dramatic flair, and a sense of momentum and power, while at the same time keeps a gentle, soothing and ethereal nature. It is the very essence of what Origen achieves by crossing Classical music with modern New Age and Ambient flavors.

What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9).
The first 16 bars of Crucifixus for 8 Voices by Antonio Lotti (1667-1740) were taken as the basis for the first song represented on this album. In everyone's life there were moments when you hear music you’ve never heard before and its beauty makes you stop in amazement and you have a desire to listen to it again and again. For Origen, one such moment involved the Crucifixus. The voices entering one by one mesmerized me from the first moment. It was an incredible feeling and we hope you’ll fill the same.

The basis of “Wisdom not found in books” is Sarabande from Suite in D minor by George Frederic Handel (1685–1759) supplemented with vocal part on the verses by William Wordsworth (1770-1850) followed by Qundo Corpus composed by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi in 1736 in the final weeks of his life.

The legacy of Mozart is represented on this CD with two works: famous Requiem Aeternam and one of his most beautiful work, Adagio from Concerto for piano and orchestra №23. You also have the opportunity to get familiar with the music of Antonio Salieri. “Variation on a theme by Saliery” is variation on the second movement of his Piano Concerto in C composed in 1773.


Of special note is the composition Do Not Cast Me Away When I Am Old (Psalm 71:9-12). It is based on the first part of the choir concerto of the same name written by Ukrainian composer Maxim Berezovsky (1745 - 1777). Berezovsky was the favorite pupil of Padre Martini and in 1771 he became the Academician of Bologna Academy of Philharmonics. Berezovsky was outstanding master a cappella choral music. Choir concerto "Do Not Cast Me Away" takes a special place in his creativity. It has a deep philosophic sense and filled with dramatism. It is a confession of haggard composer's soul who soon tragically died at age of 32 years. Originally the concert is performed a Cappella. Origen supplemented this work with instrumental arrangement.

One of the most famous songs of all time is Amarilli, Mia Bella (“Amaryllis, My Beauty”) composed by Giulio Caccini (1551-1618). Dozens and dozens of performances are available in now days. The song was no less popular in its own day and quickly became Caccini’s signature work.

Après un rêve" (Op. 7, No. 1) is another popular piece by French composer Gabriel Faure. A dream of romantic flight with a lover, away from the earth, and "towards the light" is described in this tender song. The lyrics of the song is an anonymous Italian poem freely adapted into French by Romain Bussine.
We hope you’ll enjoy listening to this album and you will have a desire to get acquainted with other masterpieces of classical music
