’Labyrinths was recorded and conceived towards the end of lockdown when there was light going into the tunnel’, says David Le Page, artistic director of the Stratford-upon-Avon based Orchestra of the Swan.
He continues, ’Labyrinths is an extraordinary collection of works connected by ideas of pilgrimage, contemplation, exploration and enlightenment… Themes of isolation, distance and a longing for human connection are filtered through beautifully atmospheric and exquisitely rendered sound worlds. This last year has been one in which we have all been confronted by the spectre of isolation and have certainly felt the need for face-to-face communication. Labyrinths invites the listener to immerse themselves completely in a sonically rewarding and wholly unexpected musical experience.’
