Domingo Hindoyan and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra release first album together

Friday 23 September 2022

The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and their Chief Conductor Domingo Hindoyan have recorded their first album together which is released on 23rd September through the Onyx label. The release of the CD also marks Hindoyan's recording debut.

A sumptuous collection of music from French composers, the album presents works from Debussy, Dukas and Roussel to create an audible feast of orchestral classics. Featuring works based on movement and mythology, Hindoyan and the Orchestra explore the musical possibilities of these works to create a bold and captivating debut album.

The album opens with Claude Debussy’s Jeux an enchanting depiction of a twilight-rendezvous where three figures search for a tennis ball. The score moves between quest and adventure, the recording delving into complex and well-thought rhythmic and harmonic relationships of the score. The beloved Debussy Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune also features in the album with principal flautist, Cormac Henry playing the famous opening flute solo. Debussy’s symphonic poem is filled with the nostalgia of fleeting moments under the haze of a late summer’s afternoon.

Albert Roussel’s Bacchus et Ariane Suite No.2 embraces impassioned themes and tantalising orchestral writing to recreate the whirlwind romance of Bacchus and Ariane.

The album concludes with La Peri: Fanfare et Poème dansé by Paul Dukas that centre on the Persian myth of Alexander the Great, and his search for the bearer of the Flower of Immortality. La Péri’s haunting musical themes lead this collection of French music to a memorable end.

Chief Conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Domingo Hindoyan, says:

“To work with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra on our first album together has been a wonderful and memorable experience. Curating this collection and bringing it to life has been an adventure, as together we explored the inspirations behind these works and allowed our imaginations to run wild!

I am delighted that this album coincides with the launch of my second season with the Orchestra and we are looking forward to relishing in the musical opportunities that lie ahead in the next year.”
