Michala Petri & Jean Thorel - Sean Hickey: A Pacifying Weapon (Vinyl)

American composer Sean Hickey's three-movement concerto for recorders, winds, brass and percussion, A Pacifying Weapon was composed as a response to recent turbulent events. Hickey sought to convey the idea of a "tool or instrument that was capable of providing an instant and irreversible peace." In turning to the recorder, he invoked many aspects of the ancient instrument's personality, from the bucolic, the melancholic and even the militant. Sharing honors with the composer, soloist Michala Petri & conductor Jean Thorel is the ensemble of young musicians from 11 nations attending the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music.
