More Info:

The French-Cypriot soprano Sarah Aristidou joins Alpha and here presents her very first album. Twice named 'Best Newcomer' by Opernwelt for two contemporary creations, she is a favorite interpreter of Jörg Widmann who has already written two works for her, and has sung under the direction of Daniel Barenboim, Sir Simon Rattle and François-Xavier Roth. Barenboim opened the doors of Berlin to her and the Orchester des Wandels (Orchestra of Change), a group of musicians from several German orchestras, including the Staatskapelle Berlin, who have set themselves the objective of practicing their art in a way that protects the planet: limiting the carbon footprint in all their activities, including this album. The disc packaging is plastic-free and printed with organic ink. Alpha also supports the reforestation program in Madagascar initiated by the orchestra. In addition to the encounter between the young singer and the unique orchestra, this project is also the result of Sarah's passion for Iceland (the land of Aether par excellence?). Along with the director and photographer Weronika Izdebska, she has created a film exalting the natural world which will be shown in Berlin in November 2022 as part of an installation presenting the entire program.
