TORI AMOS MAKES HER DEUTSCHE GRAMMOPHON DEBUT WITH NIGHT OF HUNTERS 21ST CENTURY SONG CYCLE INSPIRED BY CLASSICAL MUSIC THEMES SPANNING OVER 400 YEARS Tori Amos's debut on Deutsche Grammophon Night of Hunters is a 21st century song-cycle, inspired by classical music from the last 400 years. Following the idea of the classical song-cycle, the all-new songs from Night of Hunters tell an ongoing contemporary story. Its central character is a woman ending a long relationship, allowing the listener to follow her on a journey over the course of one night to explore complex musical and emotional themes With this album Tori Amos carries on the classical tradition of variations on a theme: taking the inspiration from works of other composers, not to copy or replace the originals, but to create an entirely new work out of them, which is also a tribute to the mastery of the original compositions. For the first time in years Amos has decided to place the piano once more at the centre of an album. All songs on Night of Hunters will be recorded entirely with acoustic instruments, focusing on the piano and an ensemble of strings and woodwinds. The release of Night of Hunters will be supported by a tour in the USA.
