Teodor Currentzis will conduct the ‘Salve Regina’, part of the ‘Marian Antiphons’ composed by Alexey Retinsky.
On February 8 at the Moscow Conservatory with the famous Choir “Musica aeterna”…
The Marian Antiphons were commissioned by the conductor Olga Prykhodko, with financial support of the Institute of Religious Sciences St. Thomas Aquinas in Kyiv. The cycle is dedicated to the 800th anniversary of the Dominican Order (Ordo Fratrum praedicatorum). The First recording was made by Ensemble Alter Ratio in 2017.
The joy of working on Marian Antiphons consisted in the fact that I only had to create favorable conditions for a future tree like a gardener, almost impartially watching him grow independently. Everything else was due to the fruitful soil of the prayerful Latin texts, every moment being ready to let a seed-sound die to be further born again. (Alexey Retinsky/2016)
