Hommage à Trois – pre-order now!
We are excited to announce the forthcoming release of William’s second solo CD, Hommage à Trois with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and conductor Nicholas McGegan.
A tribute to three of the 18th century’s finest composers, the album features arias and duets by Mozart and Haydn, and Cimarosa’s comic intermezzo Il maestro di cappella. The disc also features acclaimed soprano Carolyn Sampson in the duets.
Hommage à Trois teasingly portrays the fun, jocular, hedonistic side of life as embodied by the Lotharios, lovers and jokers of the 18th century operatic stage, such as the infamous Don Giovanni and the wicked Count Almaviva. Cimarosa’s Il maestro di cappella is a brilliant send-up of the potentially fraught relationship between a conductor and his unruly musicians.
Hommage à Trois will be released on Monday November 11th. Pre-order your copy now!
