Today is the album release of the Cello Concerto Three Continents with soloist Jan Vogler and the WDR Symphony Orchestra under Cristian Macelaru. Composers Nico Muhly (USA), Zhou Long (China) and Sven Helbig each wrote one movement for the concerto that has been commissioned by Jan Vogler and the Dresden Music Festival. Sven composed the second movement Aria for the work.
“The music on this album deals with the role of artists within our society. Three Continents is a comment on the freedom of music as a global language that is yet passionately influenced by regional and cultural conditions. It is symbolic for everything that characterizes our globalized community.” says Jan Vogler.
