Help Support “Nefertari: A Musical Epic” [Video]

To donate: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/nefertari-a-musical-epic/x/28103474#/Nefertari: A Musical Epic – by Paul SánchezHelp fund the world-premiere recording and performance of Nefertari: A Musical Epic.https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/nefertari-a-musical-epic/x/28103474#/Sung in ancient Egyptian, “Nefertari: A Musical Epic” follows Queen Nefertari on her harrowing journey to reach Paradise. She must survive the Gates and Portals of the Underworld and prove herself worthy of joining Ra and Osiris in their journey through the stars. | MORE INFORMATION |Born of a son’s love for his father, Nefertari: A Musical Epic is a reframing of tragedy.My father’s diagnosis of bone marrow cancer made stark the limitations of the time we all share together. But when we don’t know how to take the next step, we might look to those who came before, and in that search for answers to life’s greatest mystery, find great wisdom, an understanding that though we approach the final words of a book’s final chapter, its story isn’t over.Queen Nefertari’s tomb – with its stunning artwork and its symbol-laden architecture – has long been admired by my father, a physician turned Egyptologist. Sensing deep meaning to be found, and a chance to collaborate with my father on a massive and meaningful project, I set out to explore the tomb and its symbolism, and to create a musical work embodying Nefertari’s tomb and the mysteries it illuminates, the wisdom it imparts, to those with open eyes and a receptive heart. The preliminary phases of the project involved the translation and transliteration of vast swaths of the tomb’s hieroglyphs by Egyptologist Edmund Meltzer, PhD, in collaboration with my father, Gonzalo M. Sánchez, while I created vocalizations of their transliterations, undertook deep study of ancient Egyptian culture and religion, and began the process of embodying the tomb in sound through composition. Three years after the project’s inception, the final notes of the musical score were completed, resulting in an hour-long work for soprano, sistrum, and prepared piano.Sung in the ancient Egyptian inscribed in her tomb, Nefertari: A Musical Epic follows Queen Nefertari on her harrowing journey to reach Paradise. She must survive the Gates and Portals of the Underworld and prove herself worthy of joining Ra and Osiris in their journey through the stars. And in the End, she reaches the Beginning.Kayleen Sánchez: Kayleen will be the featured soprano in the world-premiere performance and recording. Kayleen is my wife and long-term collaborator in our new music duo Far Song. Kayleen has released six albums, to date, and has been praised for her “perfect voice, pure and unshakably direct in delivery…. [her] purity of voice and total control of her instrument is utterly remarkable (Fanfare Magazine).Paul Sánchez: I’ll be the pianist for the world-premiere performance and recording. Here’s a bit about me:I’m a GRAMMY-nominated pianist and composer. Reviewers have praised my “clarity, sensitivity” (The New Yorker), “pianistic sensitivity and power” (blogcritics.com) and “prodigious technical capacities” (The Rehearsal Studio). Fanfare Magazine had this to say about my music: “This is hauntingly beautiful music… generously filled with melodic inspiration and evocative atmosphere…. works of originality and a distinctive musical personality.”I’m a Steinway Artist.My CD Dreams of a New Day: Songs by Black Composers (Cedille Records), with baritone Will Liverman, hit #1 on Billboard’s “Traditional Classical Albums” chart, and was BBC Music Magazine’s “Album of the Month.” My 10th album – Lord, How Come Me Here? (Navona Records) – will be released in February, 2022, and is a collaboration with J’Nai Bridges and Will Liverman, performing music by Shawn Okpebholo.
