Composer, Conductor, Speaker. Water Night was just one of those pieces. In January of 1995 I spent the day with Dr. Bruce Mayhall, and in one amazing four hour conversation he basically convinced me to stay in school, finish my degree, and continue my life as a professional artist. I wanted so much to show my appreciation to him, to write him a piece worthy of his wisdom and understanding. I got home, opened up my book of Octavio Paz poetry, and started reading. I can’t really describe what happened. The music sounded in the air as I read the poem, as if it were a part of the poetry.

Album · 2012 · 10 Songs. In contrast with the vocal emphasis of his Decca debut, Light & Gold, Eric Whitacre’s Water Night features both choral and orchestral pieces, presenting a fully rounded picture of the composer’s talents. Both melodic richness and minimalist rigor are captured here, drawing upon deep wells of classical tradition while achieving an emotional directness that’s very contemporary

Eric Whitacre s new album Water Night features no less than 7 worldpremiere recordings. Winning a Grammy in 2012 for his firstrecording as both composer and conductor, Light and Gold, this second discfor Decca juxtaposes music written as a young composer alongside brand newrepertoire, choral and orchestral, with different influences and styles. The demand for Eric Whitacre to bring his award-winning musical Paradise Lost to the stage for a full run is vast, but in the meantime, thisnew disc includes his choral arrangement of one of the show s songs Sleep mychild. An unexpected gem in this album is a setting of Goodnight Moon, the multi-million selling American children s book byMargaret Wise Brown (Harper Collins). Written for soprano and strings,this tender piece is performed by Hila Plitmann, a Grammy winning artist withgreat commitment to contemporary music.
