Steven Stucky: Pinturas de Tamayo

£10.00

Pinturas de Tamayo is the result of American composer Steven Stucky’s encounter with the art of the Mexican painter Rufino Tamayo. Initially struck by the painting The Great Galaxy – reproduced on the cover of this CD – he chose this and four other paintings as his points of departure for a five-movement suite, which although it is far from pictorial certainly offers as much colour and poetry as the paintings themselves. In Spirit Voices for percussion and orchestra, Stucky has explored mythical beings from around the world, including Coyote, the trickster god of the Navajo Indians, mountain goblins of Japanese folk culture, and the Scottish bean nighe, a female wraith portending death.
