Tim Weiss Receives Rave Reviews for New Album of Missy Mazzoli Works
March 27, 2023
Tim Weiss’ newest recording on the BIS label, Missy Mazolli: Dark With Excessive Bright, includes several instrumental pieces by the formerly opera-focused Mazolli, with featured performances by violin soloist Peter Herresthal. Weiss leads Norway’s Arctic Philharmonic in four works on the recording. For six seasons, Weiss was artistic director of the Arctic Philharmonic Sinfonietta and he continues to be a regular guest. The album has garnered a number of rave reviews.
The Strad (free e-newsletter subscription needed) writes that “musicians from the Arctic Philharmonic provide rich, detailed support in Dark with Excessive Bright,” while the “ensemble truly comes into its own in three recent works – Sinfonia (from Orbiting Spheres), These Worlds in Us and Orpheus Undone – which receive vividly etched, expertly paced accounts.”
The Arts Fuse credits Weiss’ direction in These Worlds in Us: “Unfolding essentially like a set of variations, its pulsing, turbulent textures and captivating sense of musical space are strongly etched by Tim Weiss and the Arctic Philharmonic.”
