The CD Music for Strings of Anatolijus Šenderovas, one of the most prominent Lithuanian composers, the laureate of the Lithuanian National Prize for Culture and Art, embraces fifteen years (2000-2015) of his chamber oeuvre and reveals the most typical features of his music, i.e. profound emotionalism, temperate modernism and intense dramaturgy.
The recording offers the possibility to hear one of the most significant pieces of Lithuanian music of the recent years – the String Quartet No.3 by Šenderovas – and reflects the creative friendship of the composer with the noted ensembles established firmly in the Lithuanian music elite – the piano trio FortVio and string quartet Art Vio.
The CD also includes the versions of the two pieces dedicated to world-famous Lithuanian German cellist David Geringas to mark the extraordinary friendship and long-standing cooperation of these two artists.

The multi-perspective art of cubism and Bernd Alois Zimmermann’s “pluralistic” compositional style were some of Peter Gahn’s earliest impressions. That he was also receptive for inspiration from other art forms is still a characteristic of his music today: Many of his works open themselves to visual arts, to architecture, literature, dance, theatre and film, which are often directly integrated into the performance. However, Peter Gahn also practices these changes of context and perspective within the internal musical structures: Within a work or in
groups of works whose individual parts can be simultaneously performed in differing constellations.

Lithuania is my home country. I was born and raised in Vilnius. But what does Lithuania sound like? This double CD is a recollection of the country and the sentiments of its people. Lithuania does not only sound in Lithuania, but everywhere where people remember Lithuania.

The Moravian-born Jewish composer Gideon Klein (1919-45) composed his final work, the String Trio (1944) while interned in Theresienstadt. Quite a few of his works written there are based on Czech folksongs; his string trio falls into this category. Jewish composer Josef Koffler (1896-1944) suffered a similarly tragic fate as Klein. His Trio, op. 10 (1928) was written, however, when he was Prof. of Harmony and Atonal Composition in Lviv (Lemberg). The Trio in D Major by Ernst Neumann (1832-1910) is a work from 1883. The Eos Trio Frankfurt is keen to bring forgotten or unknown works back to audiences.

 

Capella della Torre - Renaissance goes JazzRenaissance goes Jazz
Live recording

Capella de la Torre
Markus Becker - piano
Michel Godard - serpent, tuba, electric bass
musical direction: Katharina Bäuml

Catalog number 21075

Renaissance ensemble Capella de la Torre on the one side, tuba player and composer Michel Godard and pianist Markus Becker on the other, combine jazz with the alien distance of the renaissance instruments by letting the past and the present meet and collide. They give worlds of differing memories a new form and let the heterogeneous become something new and homogenous. A co-production with NDR 1

"With the Renaissance ensemble Capella de la Torre on one side, and tuba player/composer Michel Godard and pianist Markus Becker on the other, jazz collides with an alien universe of renaissance instruments. The result in this live recording is entirely unexpected and brilliant, capturing the flavor and zest of the Renaissance's addictive mix of old and ancient instruments, providing an elusive, ingenious musical experience that refuses to be generalized."
