Overview

Itaipu is a large-scale work for orchestra and chorus composed by Philip Glass for the Atlanta Symphony and was premiered there under the baton of Robert Shaw in 1989. Orange Mountain Music presents this re-mastered recording of the work (originally released on RCM) featuring the renowned Los Angeles Master Chorale under the direction of Grant Gershon.

Itaipu, a symphonic portrait for chorus and orchestra, was inspired by the giant hydro-electric dam in Brazil and is part of a series of the composer's works involving depictions of man's relationship to nature. The libretto is taken from the creation myth of the Guarani, and is sung in the Guarani language.

The album is rounded out by the Crouch End Festival Chorus performing Philip Glass' Three Songs for Choir a Cappella (originally issued on Silva Screen) set to texts by Leonard Cohen, Raymond Levesque, and Octavio Paz. From the Label
