Mysterium druidum - Sylvie Bodorova

Sylvie Bodorová wrote Mysterioum druidum for Englichová and the Chamber Music Festival in Tucson, Arizona. It’s for harp and strings, as with the Lukáš.

The first movement takes their trees as its central motif, and there’s fiercely evocative writing as well as one of her surging tunes – listen from around 3:40 (it’s tremendous). The second movement is called Vindobona, the name of a Celtic settlement in what is now Vienna. This sounds intriguingly like a very stripped-down Tallis Fantasia – there’s a baronial elegance as well to the writing before bardic soliloquies for the strings.
