Hans Bakker composer
Howard Richards composer
Kühn Choir | Marek Vorlícek conductor
Natural beauty, emotion, and enlightenment. These are but a few of the common threads of SEEKING & FINDING, an album of choral works by two composers whose pointed explorations of humanity resonate in perfect pitch. Working with texts from ancient Sanskrit literature and the poetry of Gibran and Joyce, Hans Bakker (b. 1945) and Howard Richards (1927-2010) share an ability to steer the chorus through the sea of human emotion and experience, artfully portraying the epiphanous, the spiritual, and the joyous with unmatched profundity and depth.
