ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra (VICO) one of the few orchestras in the world to bring together musicians and composers from many cultural and artistic communities -, including Chinese, Taiwanese, Japanese, Indian, Persian (Iranian), Latin and South American, Vietnamese, African, North American and European - celebrated a more than ten year-long artistic partnership with the acclaimed choral group Laudate Singers in 2015 with a concert of choral intercultural music, entitled Mystics & Lovers. The next day the same 50 musicians reconvened with producer Mark Armanini, VICO’s artistic director, to record two of the works featured in the program, “Ani Ma-amin” by VICO founder Moshe Denburg and “Asheghaneh” by Iran-born Farshid Samandari. The result of that session can be heard on the newly released album Mystic & Lovers.

The two compositions, which were first commissioned and performed several years ago, share central themes. Both draw on the poetic best of many cultures in order to build bridges between them. Both strive for unity in diversity, expressing a longing for peace and understanding, and seeking connection between personal love and spiritual devotion. Both make use of the human voice and instruments from many countries, both ancient and contemporary, to highlight both the commonality and contrasting expressions of these deeply human sentiments, and both draw on centuries-old texts (by the 12th century Rabbi/philosopher Maimonides in “Ani Ma-amin” and the 11th century Persian poet/philosopher Baba Tahir in “Asheghaneh”) that still resonate today.
