Michael Stimpson's The Angry Garden released on Vinyl

Michael Stimpson: The Angry Garden
Composer Michael Stimpson's The Angry Garden was originally premiered in 2002 at at St John’s Smith Square in support of the World Wildlife Fund. A five-movement work for soli, choir and orchestra, written in collaboration with the poet Simon Rae, the work addresses the sense of environmental degradation that was already apparent then. This makes the work even more relevant than ever, and a new recording by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the City of London Choir, and conductor Hilary Davan Wetton is being released on vinyl today.

The Angry Garden has recently been released on CD, and now is available in a deluxe, limited-edition LP. The recording has been produced to minimise environmental impact with the vinyl LP being produced by Deepgrooves Vinyl Pressing Plant in the Netherlands whose strict Eco-policy ensures that they are ‘the greenest vinyl pressing plant on the planet’. The LP/recording is also widely available digitally, on Amazon and Michael Stimpson's website, and distributed worldwide. Michael has decided that only extracts of the piece will be available to stream since in his opinion streaming organisations do not operate a fair and equitable system for sharing income from their activities
