Jennifer Fowler was born in Australia in 1939; she moved to England in 1969 and has forged a very successful path as a free-lance composer since then. Over the years she has won several international prizes, and her work has been performed in Europe, Australia and Asia. Her output, which includes orchestral, chamber and instrumental works and vocal compositions, shows a composer with an individual voice within the contemporary mainstream. The works on this album are all receiving their premiere recording.
The performers are first class throughout. Soprano Raphaela Papadakis won the National Mozart Competition, had her Carnegie Hall debut in 2014 and has worked with the Royal Opera House, Berlin Staatsoper and Glyndebourne. Mezzo Lauren Easton is a busy operatic performer, her Glyndebourne debut being in 2011.
The impact of Lontano on the new-music scene has been profound and dramatic, also enduring. Formed by Odaline de la Martinez in 1976, Lontano has established itself as one of the most exciting and versatile names in the contemporary music world.
