muoayiyoum...what a splendid German tour!
...The second half of the program brought some surprises, not only in the form of a few Caprice-inspired pieces, but also in what was to stand out as the high point of the tour. From the same article in Intrinet:
The high point was reached with Anders Hillborg's Opus "muoayiyoum" from 1983, which the composer specially adapted for Orphei Drängar. All in all the concert, which also rounded off Kultursommer Rheinland-Pfalz, was an impressive experience, fully commensurate with the minutes-long standing ovation it was given.
The week following their return, OD completed its recording of the CD featuring highlights, to be released during the 150th Anniversary Year. We are pleased to inform prospective buyers that one of the tracks on the CD will be devoted to the muoayiyoum work acclaimed above.
