This September, equal parts excited and nervous, I left on my first overseas trip to the Czech Republic for a week of recording sessions with PARMA’s production team. For anyone who hasn’t visited, the Czech Republic is a charming country with a rich and deep artistic culture (and great food).
While there, we had the pleasure of working with Los Angeles composer Nicolas Kaviani on the recording of his setting of Te Deum, followed by an a’capella work entitled “Tous les matins du monde,” both to be included on an upcoming release through PARMA Recordings.
|Olomouc, Czech Republic|
Mr. Kaviani’s setting of Te Deum is a beautiful and seminal work for full orchestra, chorus, and four vocal soloists. We spent multiple days in the city of Olomouc, bringing together some of Europe’s greatest musicians, to record this monumental piece of music.
It has been over a month since we have returned and captured all of the material that will be included on Mr. Kaviani’s upcoming release. We’ve been working together diligently on this project and now is your chance to be a part of it.
Nicolas has just launched a Kickstarter campaign to help offset some of the financial expenses he had to incur during the production of this project. He is offering some compelling rewards and as an added bonus, was able to bring along director Alexis Hellot to shoot the entire experience. You can see a trailer from the forthcoming DVD and listen to an excerpt from his setting of Te Deum below. Learn more about the project and support Nicolas here: kck.st/1xDBBzu
