    New CD: »Kosmos«

    In May, this year (2003), I finished producing and editing a new CD called "Kosmos". It will be released later this year or early 2004...

    UPDATE: The CD "Kosmos" was released on the danish label "Classico" on August 11, 2004. It can be ordered and shipped worldwide from this store

    Two of the pieces on the CD can be downloaded for free in full:
    Click Here to download »Phoenix« [9.3 MB, 160 kbps MP3] or go to this page to download »Cantilena«. You can also download a large excerpt of the title work »Kosmos« from this page.

    The performers are: The Cecilia Choir (conducted by Gunnar Svensson), Signe Hyldgard (soprano), Martin Palsmar (barytone), Anton Lasine (violin), Nina Schlemm (harp), Ole Andersen (trumpet), Klaus Jerndorff (organ) and myself (organ, track 11 & 12)

    And the programme:

    1. Niels W. Gade: "Morning Song" (choir)
    2. Frederik Magle: "Phoenix" (choir & organ)
    3.-10. Gabriel Fauré: "Requiem" (choir, soloists, violin, harp & organ)
    11. Frederik Magle: "Kosmos" (trumpet & organ)
    12. Frederik Magle: "Cantilena" (solo organ)
    13. W.A. Mozart: "Ave Verum Corpus" (choir & organ)
    14. C.E.F. Weyse: "Night so deeply quiet" (choir)

    I hope you will enjoy "Phoenix", "Cantilena" and the rest of the CD!

    Some more info about Phoenix

    Here are the lyrics (translated from danish):

    Phoenix shines
    Phoenix is radiant
    Like The Morningstar
    It revives
    And lives
    Even when Man perishes

    Phoenix lives
    Phoenix dies
    But is one with eternity.
    It brings kindling to the flame
    Set alight by
    Love.

    I spend many months composing this work. There is quite an attention to detail, which might take more than one listening to realise the full scope of. Also, there are a some secrets within...

    If anyone is interested in the full score, then please contact me (an excerpt is available here). If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask them here.

    I'm pleased to announce that the CD "Kosmos" will be published (and publically released) on the danish label "Classico". I will post more info about availability etc. when it is released in a few weeks.

    Yesterday (Monday, 12th) I spend 10 hours optimizing the audio on each track for the very best possible sound and I'm really pleased with the result, hope you will be too!

    Kosmos CD

    Zuko, did you obtain the Kosmos CD through that Danish label Classico? Recently? How long did it take for you to receive it, and what country are you in? I ordered it a few weeks ago and have heard nothing from the company since then, and my emails have gone unanswered.
