Light the Cauldron


Gold! Gold! Gold! Marc Taddei conducts the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra in a concert of inspirational works in a musical celebration of the Olympic spirit.

Vangelis: Chariots of Fire
Williams: Olympic Spirit
John Psathas: View from Olympus
music from Zhanhao/Gang: ButterflyLovers' Concerto

Pedro Carniero (percussion) and Michael Houstoun (piano) rejoin Marc in a reprise of their soloistic roles in the performance of the Psathas work. (The prize winning CD/DVD "View from Olympus": includes recordings of Psathas' first saxophone concerto Omnifenix and Piano concerto Three Psalms as well.)

Marc Taddei says:
'John Psathas' monumental View from Olympus has been met with a standing ovation every time it has been performed around the world - it is an event in itself! This exciting musical celebration of Olympic cities past and present includes stirring music from the lighting of the cauldron in Athens and in the run-up to the 2008 Beijing Games, recreates the burning Olympic spirit live in concert.'
