Peter Jonatan & Metropole Orkest

Psalms Symphony ft. Groot Omroepkoor

MO.CD.92

This powerful and extraordinary work takes as its subject matter the biblical Book of Psalms – or rather four psalms, carefully chosen by composer Peter Jonatan for their expressive and musical potential. For the most part, Psalms Symphony parallels the classic symphonic form, with a big opening theme and variations (God, the Magnificent King, Pslam 29), an adagio (God, the Merciful, Psalm 136), a scherzo (God, the Protector, Psalm 121) and an even bigger finish (God, the Savior and Holy Judge, Pslam 96) with the full Groot Omroepkoor (Dutch Radio Choir) and soloists. The jazz element is strong, with pianist Jasper Soffers, bassist Aram Kersbergen and drummer Martijn Vink functioning as a band within the band – improvising, swinging hard, but also holding down major parts of the written orchestration.
