Release ‘CD Seven Nocturnes’

The Seven Nocturnes are a seven-part cycle, inspired by the days of the week. The Romans named the seven days of the week after the principal celestial bodies known to them. These bore the names of Roman gods. Each day was dedicated to a different god and a different celestial body.
The original version was composed for piano solo and recorded at Studio Dada Brussels by Daniel Blumenthal, laureate of the Queen Elisabeth Competition piano. Ten years later the cycle was orchestrated for orchestra and recorded at Galaxy Studio Mol by the orchestra Prima La Musica, conducted by the composer.
