DESCRIZIONE

Gli Stati Uniti d’America una Terra Promessa?
L’album Free America! celebra gli ideali e le speranze che hanno animato la giovane Repubblica Americana tra il 1770 e il 1860. Le rivendicazioni per la libertà di assembramento, la ribellione, le battaglie e i loro altissimo prezzo, ma soprattutto il desiderio di una nuova armonia nella quale i canti, gli inni hanno accompagnato questo lungo cammino verso una Terra promessa.  Un messaggio forte per questa prima collaborazione tra Harmonia Mundi e il mezzosoprano Anne Azéma alla guida della Boston Camerata.
