Mark Abel :


Acclaimed American composer Mark Abel’s sixth album for Delos extends his growing command of chamber writing and displays his expanding palette of expression while also delivering three major new vocal works.

Celebrated sopranos Isabel Bayrakdarian (four times a Juno Award winner) and Hila Plitmann (a pair of GRAMMY® Awards and a longtime Abel collaborator) are joined by mezzo-soprano Kindra Scharich in pre- senting the song cycles Trois Femmes du Cinema and 1966, and debuting Two Scenes from The Book of Esther, a provocative excerpt from an opera in develop- ment.

The album’s impressive array of instrumentalists in- cludes pianist Carol Rosenberger (making the final recording of her epic career, which includes well over 40
albums for Delos); fellow pianists Dominic Cheli, Sean Kennard and Jeffrey LaDeur; Alexander String Quartet violist David Samuel; Pacific Symphony concertmaster Dennis Kim; and cello star Jonah Kim.

Spectrum is Abel’s deepest and richest offering thus far, underscoring previous kudos from Gramophone (“music compelling in narrative depth and energy”), The Whole Note (“a compositional master of intriguing contemporary music”) and The Journal of Singing (“bold and ambitious ideas and the resourcefulness to nearly always bring them to full and effective fruition”).

Founded in 1973, Delos has released more than 650 albums featuring top artists. A pioneer in digital recording, Delos is known as a label with a strong personality that attracts a host of major performers and has also garnered acclaim for the technical excellence of its recordings.
