The production of this CD, "War of Angels" is a part of the Prairie Sounds Imprint of Centrediscs that is administered by the Prairie Region of the Canadian Music Centre."
Intense and beautiful music inspired by the monumental clash of angelic armies, the flight of mythical beasts and the vast expanses of the Canadian arctic. These are the sounds that fill this disc of music commissioned and performed by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. The audience at the wildly successful New Music Festival in Winnipeg has embraced the music of composer T. Patrick Carrabré for well over a decade. The four works on this disc offer an in-depth sound portrait of the creative partnership between composer, musicians and an audience that ranges from hipsters to veteran symphony lovers.
