Description

The Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra presents a collaboration with three emerging composers on the different forms of love, as described by C.S. Lewis in his essay, The Four Loves.

Notes

C.S. Lewis once wrote an essay, The Four Loves, as well as a novel based on a similar investigation, entitled Till We Have Faces. In these works, he categorized four types of love upon the Greek words for its different forms: storge (love of family), philia (love between people in the same community), eros (romantic love), and agape (unconditional love, as from God to humans). In compiling this album, the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra intends to present collaboration on the different forms of love.

Two of the works in this collection derive from love of family. In James Ogburn’s A Picture in Einstein’s Hand, the composer gives gratitude to his father for everything he knows and has ever known. Roger W. Petersen attempts to cope with the loss of his grandmother with Where her Lingering Smile Resides. Ogburn’s Wschodni Wiatr is based upon the story of one country and the love between that country’s own people. In Complements and Collisions, Ogburn commits his romantic love for his wife into their shared devotion of music, by writing a work specifically for her and inspired by their relationship. Glory to God is a work intended to convey Thomas Cha’s gratitude to his God, for the unconditional love he has received. It is our hope that this collection will inspire the listener to be grateful for the love in his or her life and to return that love to the surrounding world.
