The Swiss composer Franco Cesarini has waited a long time to write his first symphony and after years of considering and drafting, this Archangels Symphony, Symphony nr. 1 is a vast composition consisting of highly dramatic language, intense thematic developments and frequent polyphonic elaborations. The thematic material is taken from old Gregorian melodies that form the basis for the entire work, which is, despite the title, a non-programmatic work. It consists out of 4 movements: Gabriel, the gentle archangel; the supreme healer Raphael; the energetic archangel Michael, the Prince of the heavenly host; and surprisingly the archangel Urile, the 'forgotten' archangel. Atrue masterpiece and a fantastic musical challenge!

De Zwitserse componist Franco Cesarini heeft lang gewacht met het schrijven van zijn eerste symfonie, en na jaren van overpeinzen en schetsen, is zijn Archangels Symphony, Symphony nr. 1 uiteindelijk een omvangrijke compositie geworden met een zeer dramatische klanktaal, intense thematische ontwikkelingen en frequente polyfone uitweidingen. Het thematische materiaal dat de basis van het werk vormt, is afkomstig uit oude gregoriaanse melodieen. Anders dan de titel suggereert, gaat het niet om een programmatisch werk. Het bestaat uit vier delen: Gabriel, de vriendelijke aartsengel; de goddelijke genezer Rafael; de energieke aartsengel Michael, de vorst derhemelse legerscharen; en de 'vergeten' aartsengel Uriel. Een waar meesterwerk en een geweldige muzikale uitdaging!

Der Schweizer Komponist Franco Cesarini hat sich viel Zeit genommen, bevor er seine erste Sinfonie komponiert hat. Nach mehreren Jahren des Nachdenkens und Skizzierens ist mit der Sinfonie Nr. 1, der Archangels Symphony (Erzengel-Sinfonie), eine umfangreiche Komposition mit einer dramatischen Tonsprache, mit intensiven thematischen Entwicklungen und zahlreichen polyphonen Durchfuhrungen entstanden. Das thematische Material wurde von alten gregorianischen Melodien inspiriert, die die Grundlage fur das ganze Werk bilden. Die Sinfonie, die trotz ihres Titel kein programmatisches Werk ist, hat vier Satze: der sanfte Erzengel Gabriel, der oberste Heiler Raphael, derenergische Erzengel Michael, Furst der himmlischen Heerscharen, und uberraschenderweise der vergessene Erzengel Uriel. Ein wahres Meisterwerk und eine fantastische musikalische Herausforderung!

Le compositeur suisse Franco Cesarini a attendu longtemps pour ecrire sa premiere symphonie. Apres des annees de reflexion et de redaction, cette Symphony no.1 - The Archangels est une vaste composition au langage fort dramatique, aux developpements thematiques intenses et aux elaborations polyphoniques frequentes. Le materiel thematique, pris d'anciennes melodies gregoriennes, forme la base de l'oeuvre entiere qui, malgre le titre, n'est pas un morceau a programme. La symphonie est composee de quatre mouvements : Gabriel, l'archange tendre ; le guerisseur Raphael ; l'archange energique Michel, le prince de la milice celeste ; et, curieusement, Uriel, l'archange << oublie>>. Un vrai chef d'oeuvre et un defi musical fantastique !

Il compositore svizzero Franco Cesarini ha dovuto attendere parecchio tempo prima di pubblicare la sua prima sinfonia e - dopo anni di labor limae - questa Sinfonia ndeg 1 degli Arcangeli ha visto finalmente la luce. Imponente e dal linguaggio grave e drammatico, e un'opera di straordinaria complessita, il cui impianto tematico risente dell'influsso delle melodie gregoriane. Consta di quattro movimenti, corrispondenti ai quattro arcangeli Gabriele, Raffaele, Michele e Uriele.
