Age of Light

by William Kersten

Released 2017
Released 2017
A spectacular and heroic symphonic poem for large orchestra and pipe organ.
NOTES
"The symphonic poem Age of Light is a triumphal tribute to Enlightenment. This composition shows Kersten's capacity for diversity: his Concert March captures the youthful vigor of a marshal parade; Age of Light is a mature, respectful composition. It features elegant melodies, picked up with the clarity of a trumpet and then echoed by other instruments. While darkness will always challenge intellect - and this tone poem gives voice to that conflict - ignorance submits and is vanquished in this anthem for a new Age of Enlightenment, an Age of Light. This is an inspiring homage to the power of the mind and its ability to conquer all with thought."
- Guy de Broglia

"...while "Shadows of the Soul" summons phantasms at once individually conceived, it also draws on archetypes as though Carl Gustav Jung himself directed the orchestra..."
