|'Spirits of Music' is an unusual musical journey through the centuries, with stops on all continents; a journey ranging from spirituals to Ravel, Bach to Bulgarian folk music, and Klezmer to Mozart. Bobby is joined by internationally renowned soloists and ensembles including violinist Nigel Kennedy, soprano Sibylla Rubens, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the gospel and spiritual choir Kuumba Singers, and the Bulgarian Voices "Angelite".
Recorded in June 2002 in front of an enthusiastic crowd of 20,000 gathered on Leipzig's historic Market Square, this is Bobby at his best, uniting world, classical and spiritual music in one joyous celebration. Highly recommended!
Highlights include: Bobby conducting the Scherzo from Mendelssohn's 'Midsummer Nights Dream' and MOzart's 'Exsultate jubilate, K.165'; Sprirituals with Bobby and the Kuumba Singers; Bobby singing with the Bulgarian Voices; Nigel Kennedy and the klezmer trio Kroke.
