Professional recordings of ‘The Citadel’ and ‘A Mystery’ performed by Brno Philharmonic under Mikel Toms are part of a collection called ‘Stage and Screen Volume 1’, following a recording made for Ablaze Records in 2016.
The recordings are presented in music videos below, as well as being available in high quality audio from a number of websites, including Presto Classical and Spotify.
The Citadel is an orchestral work that invokes an imaginary world. This piece is scored for double woodwind, full brass section, strings, harp, timpani, gong and side drum.
A Mystery is scored for alto saxophone, string orchestra, harp and gong. I would describe the music as song-like with a mood somewhere between mysticism and romanticism, featuring unusual key changes and chromaticism.
If any orchestra is interested in performing either of these pieces, please contact me – Thank you.
