Enjoying a long-standing association with Silva Screen Records, ‘Signature’ is Debbie’s ninth album on the label, following high-profile popular releases such as A Poet In New York, Wolf Hall and Dickensian. With this album, Debbie Wiseman celebrates her 60th Birthday and her long distinguished artistic career in the world of TV, film and concert music. The concert will be broadcast on Classic FM.
Debbie says: “To have the opportunity of conducting the CBSO with some of my favourite music and scores composed for film, TV, royalty, Classic FM and special occasions is the best birthday gift I could ever imagine. I have long admired the CBSO – their orchestral sound is naturally glorious, rich and dramatic, and to be able to collaborate with this world-class orchestra on this live album is a dream come true. I truly feel as though all my birthdays have come at once!”
Signature features a selection of Debbie Wiseman’s most popular pieces with new orchestral arrangements specially created for the prestigious CBSO. The orchestra is also conducted by the composer herself, making the event even more memorable for both the composer and CBSO, as well as Debbie’s faithful fans. Other highlights from the album include ‘Wolf Hall’, ‘A Lustre To This Day’ (originally written for the acclaimed British cellist Steven Isserlis) and ‘Elizabeth Remembered’ (music featured on the BBC’s coverage of the State Funeral of Queen Elizabeth II).
