We finally managed to get into the studio and record the music to the song we put together for the Russian Tea Salon at the NPG. That sounds as if I do this kind of thing on a daily basis but I don't. I have never been into the studio, I have never recorded music that has had anything to do with me!
Lewis Murphy as composer, Ricardo Panela as Baritone, Noah Mosley on Piano. Each of them virtuoso in their own way. That is what I have noticed when it comes to Opera. The level of musical detail is of a level that I simply can't hear. Each session is like a masterclass. It isn't the same in the pop/musical world. There it is all melodies and catchyness. Here is absolutely getting the note and word into pleasing combinations. Mistakes are simply not tolerated. Not in a neggy way, but in a way that slowly over a few hours leads to something quite beautiful.
So in as much as I can invite you to the event at the NPG, I can bring you the Soundcloud. Look at the portrait of Mussorgsky. Imaginge him coming back to life for a week. Enjoy the music.
