My Life in Widening Circles

R. Murray Schafer is a Canadian national treasure, composer, philosopher, scholar, scientist, poet, author, artist and renaissance man. A labour of love, this is the first Centrediscs recording devoted to his chamber music, instrumental and with soprano, including works from three distinct periods of his life. Kinderlieder, an early work from the 50’s, remains innocent and fresh more than five decades later, Wild Bird is a compelling tone painting from the 90’s. The disc also contains three rich and mature works from the recent past, including Six Songs from Rilke’s “Book of Hours”. This is the premiere recording of Six Songs, and also Trio for Violin, Viola and Cello.
