Abigail features on new CD 'Jesse Owens & Preludes In Our Time'

JESSE OWENS & PRELUDES IN OUR TIME featuring ABIGAIL KELLY | JOHNNY HERFORD | MEGUMI FUJITA PHILHARMONIA ORCHESTRA | STUART STRATFORD

​ The Philharmonia Orchestra are heard in all their majesty on the incidental music from Michael Stimpson's opera, Jesse Owens, a work about the legendary US athlete who won four gold medals at the Berlin Olympics of 1936. This is accompanied by a collection of songs from the opera, arranged for soprano, baritone, and piano, in which singers Abigail Kelly and Johnny Herford beautifully illustrate the breadth of the work, the struggle, humour, and achievements of the greatest Olympian ever. These two works are complimented by Preludes In Our Time, for solo piano. Written while the world was looking towards the Beijing Olympics, this unique collection is enchantingly performed by Megumi Fujita, who also accompanies the singers.

Released on Stone Records on 12/08/2016
