Sound Samples
Heribert Leuchter’s KlangWeltReligion - (Sound of World Religion) was commissioned for the Expo 2000 world fair in Hannover. Performed with Kate Westbrook as soloist by the Aachen-based Lux Orchester, the piece was featured regularly throughout the six months of the Expo. Concerts took place in the innovative marble, glass and steel Christus Pavillon, a multi-faith space in the centre of the Expo site. Described as ‘a lyrical-musical collage for voice and jazz orchestra’, KlangWeltReligion includes settings of Ancient Egyptian, Hindu and Sufi texts and of the poetry of Rose Ausländer, Paul Celan, Matthias Claudius and Oscar Wilde. The concluding concerts, on October 26th and 27th October were recorded live. Released by Luxuries Records KlangWeltReligion is available on CD for the first time.
