Featuring the World Premiere of
The Tides of Mont Saint-Michel: A Montage
by Carol Worthey

Stanley Wong & Gary Ngan

鋼琴小提琴藝術之夜【詩奔法國古堡•神秘影子盒】

Hosted by Stanley Wong

 
I'm immensely thrilled and honored that Concert Pianist Stanley Wong will premiere my piano suite that travels back in time to an age of kings and saints, knights and ninja-like monks protecting the coast of France, fierce and spiritual times of the Age of Chivalry, on July 15th in Hong Kong.
The Tides of Mont Saint Michel: A Montage! is a kind of TIME TRAVEL with these evocative movements:
  • The Bells of Time
  • Illumination
  • Battle Cry of St. Michael-in-Peril-of-The-Sea
  • Chant Angelicus
  • Chanson de Roland
  • Tides
  • Bells Echo through The Ages
  • Total duration of the suite: 21:35
    The initial premiere was exceptionally well received and Stanley Wong is planning another performance this August!

    Happy Birthday Carol Worthey!

    Happy Birthday Carol Worthey!
    Studio and Balloons - what could be better?

     
     
    Carol Worthey celebrated her birthday with family and friends. They provided food, drink, cake, candles and balloons. Carol's husband provided a multi-media cinematic surround-sound custom performance in a state-of-the-art studio (which he provided thanks to PhotoShop, the Gimp and some tweaks [grin]).
    All in all, it was a great day!

    In My Perfect Landscape - Premiere Performance
    Windsong Players Chamber Ensemble
    Perfect Landscape Score Cover

    A Musical Universe with A Perfect Landscape Enchants A Rapt Audience!

     
     
    Windsong Players Chamber Ensemble
    perform the
    World-Premiere of

    In My Perfect Landscape
    for Soprano, Flute, Violin & Piano

    Veronica Bell, Soprano
    Alice Pero, Flute
    Shushan Hakobyan, Piano
    Ruben Aghiyan, Violin

    Words by Alice Pero, Music by Carol Worthey

     
    A delightful concert from start to finish (music by Quantz, Mozart, Copland, Schubert, Chopin, Ruben Aghiyan and ending with Carol Worthey 's new song setting of In My Perfect Landscape for Soprano (the charismatic Veronica Bell whose voice is rapturously beautiful and expressive), Flute (ably performed—and commissioned—by Alice Pero , whose beautiful poem inspired Carol greatly), Ruben Aghiyan (excellent violinist and composer himself, who presented his own composition Heavenly Angel for Violin & Piano, written in honor of his mother) and Shushan Hakobyan (a wizard on the piano, a true master and highly sensitive artist with exceptional tone-color and fluidity).
    A very attentive audience of music lovers, fellow performers, families and children were entranced and stood for a long Ovation at the end of the Premiere and Concert.
    Praise from the performers is always extra-special, because they are the ones who have to bring the music alive and because they know their craft, their challenges and their hard-work to learn the piece better than anyone. Here is one such noteworthy comment:
    "This is MY SONG! Even though I gave a whole Solo Concert yesterday, I couldn't get your song out of my mind! It stays with me! You really know how to write for the voice, Carol! I can't wait to record this on a CD!"
    Veronica Bell ,
    Renowned Soprano, International Opera Singer, Teacher and Art Song Specialist
    And the Audience? Nearly every person there came up to the performers and composer Carol Worthey with enthusiastic praise! Here are just three of the raves:
    "A truly divine finish to a heavenly afternoon. So interesting to hear Alice's piece become song. It made the poem not larger than itself but created a new universe right beside it that was astonishing. Many congratulations Carol!"
    Lois P. Jones ,
    Renowned Poet, Co-Founder of Moonday Poetry Readings and Radio Host

    "You've outdone yourself! The song has a very special peacefulness. I just loved it and so glad I came!"

    "Congratulations, Carol, on a spectacular premiere! Your piece was wonderful to close a concert by amazing performers. There was something very special happening in that church."
    Jim Ellingson ,
    fellow Toastmaster and knowledgeable Classical-Music Afficionado who regularly attends concerts with Carol Worthey's Music

    "A beautiful song, one of your best works! I particularly loved the way you completed each melodic phrase [in the voice] with interweaving of the flute and violin!"
    Naomi Conners ,
    Toastmaster, who has attended—for twenty years or so—nearly every Southern California concert that has featured Carol Worthey's music
    The venue deserves praise as well: Eagle Rock Covenant Church is a lovely, lofty and serene space with perfect acoustics, a good-sized stage, gently glowing stained-glass windows, cushioned pews, an excellent piano (like Carol Worthey's own piano, a George Steck!) and a very nice and helpful church staff! Carol would like to thank Church Board Member Leo and his wife for making the performers and audience feel especially comfortable and welcome.
    Here is Carol's Composer Preface to the music score (which includes the beautiful poem by Alice Pero) to give you more of an idea of the impact and vision that took hold of the composer when creating In My Perfect Landscape.
