This album is for those who love classical and popular music and can appreciate the beautiful singing. This album is for those who are not afraid of a new approach in the interpretation of classical masterpieces.
Award winning singer of Ukrainian National Opera House Tanya Lubimenko has a surprisingly ethereal voice. Unlike Jackie Ivancho and early Charlotte Church, with their children and still undelivered voices, or Sarah Brightman and Hayley Westenra who are actually pop singers but sometimes try to look like opera divas, Tanya is professionally trained classical singer, though according to the conception of this album she sings in a crossover of classical and pop vocal styles.
The founder of Origen, composer, arranger and producer Alexsey Zakharenko is a real master of Classical Crossover. His works got many awards. His trademark mixture of combining the classical with the electronic is even more refined.
The title "Ave Maria" is usually associated with the names of Schubert, Bach, Gounod, Caccini. This may seem strange, but none of these composers ever composed songs with this title. The first track on this album is Ave Maria which usually misattributed to Giulio Caccini. It is the biggest musical hoax. Actually it was composed and first performed by Russian guitarist, lutenist and composer Vladimir Vavilov. Schubert's Ave Maria originally was titled "Ellens dritter Gesang" (Ellen's third song). The words to this song were taken from German translation of Walter Scott's poem "The Lady of the Lake". You can hear original German version of Shubert's song in the second part of track #3 of this album (the first part of this track is traditional Latin version of the song). Ave Maria attributed to Bach-Gounod is actually variation on the 1st prelude of Bach 's "Well-tempered Clavier" for violin and piano made by Ch.Gounod in 1853. Only six years later the words were added to this variation and this made this song so popular. This album also includes beautiful new age rendition of music by Pachelbel, Beethoven, Bach and more. This is the second edition of this album which includes 11tracks. The first edition and mp3 version of the album have only 10 tracks and do not include Pachelbel's Canon in D.
