Cho­ris­ter’s voice ap­pears on mag­a­zine’s CD

Gloucestershire Echo - - CITIZEN -

» A DEAN Close School pupil and Cho­ris­ter of Tewkes­bury Abbey Schola Can­to­rum has made it to the front cover of this month’s BBC Mu­sic Mag­a­zine.

To­wards the end of last year, Cas­sian Pich­ler-roca won the BBC Ra­dio Two Young Cho­ris­ter of the Year com­pe­ti­tion along­side Emilia Jaques.

Since then he has been incredibly busy per­form­ing in var­i­ous con­certs and record­ing for the BBC.

Most re­cently he took part in the Good Fri­day broad­cast At the Foot of the Cross, broad­cast on Ra­dio 2.

This month’s BBC Mu­sic mag­a­zine fea­tures a CD of Cas­sian along­side Emilia, com­pris­ing pieces for tre­ble and so­prano voices, in­clud­ing works by Brit­ten, Franck, Faure and Rut­ter. They are ac­com­pa­nied by the BBC Phil­har­monic Orches­tra con­ducted by Dar­ius Bat­ti­walla, who also fea­tures on the al­bum as their ac­com­pa­nist on the pi­ano and or­gan. Si­mon Bell, Direc­tor of Schola Can­to­rum said, “This al­bum is a show­case for the two win­ners of this pres­ti­gious BBC com­pe­ti­tion and is a de­light­ful mix­ture of both solo pieces for the in­di­vid­ual win­ners and duets where they per­form to­gether. “We are very proud of Cas­sian’s achieve­ment in the com­pe­ti­tion and hope that those who buy the CD will en­joy lis­ten­ing to the di­verse reper­toire.”
