Silence, Night and Dreams

1 segments
On this New Sounds, listen to the latest work by Zbigniew Preisner called "Silence, Night and Dreams," featuring Madredeus singer Teresa Salgueiro. It's a large-scale work for orchestra, choir and soloists, based on texts from the Book of Job and the gospel of Matthew, as well as words by Pope John Paul II and the Polish poet Zbigniew Herbert. Also, there's Portuguese fado-infused music by Madredeus, which also dips into Argentine tango and even Europop electronica. And more.
