”Dear Mr. Hudde,

you gave me an enormous surprise. You and your chamber music partners have wonderfully recorded my piece of music Trivium.

Rene Eespere”

”It’s nice to see the three pieces by Rubén’s late father, which I published with Universal Edition 19 (!) years ago. He is rarely remembered now, but as he was a modest man I don’t suppose he feels badly about it!. Minimalism is not my favourite musical idiom, but on hearing Trivium my worst fears proved groundless!. Trivium is a delightful piece with a contemplative stillness that is very north European - not least that of Finland. Sincerely,

John Duarte”

New music from Japan and China
for Recorder and Percussion

Gudula Rosa, recorders
Haruka Fujii, percussion

Catalog number 21039

While many western composers have been fascinated and inspired by Asian music, their counterparts in Asia have adapted their musical language to the western modern and have tried to interfuse this with Asian sensations. “Asia” is present in contemporary music in many ways. The recordings on this CD combine works by renowned composers who have each, in their own way, determined the face of contemporary Asian music. The first work is by John Cage who founded and left a lasting impression on the western way of viewing Asian thinking and Asian aesthetics.

Fatum
Roman Viazovskiy, guitar

Catalog number 21001

Works by: Konstantin Vassiliev , Leo Brouwer, Antonio José, Egberto Gismonti

“… Certainly Fatum is one of the best recordings I have reviewed over recent years, the playing is immaculate, the programme has no low points: what more could one ask for? The undoubted highlights for the reviewer are the two works by Konstantin Vassiliev. … This is wonderful writing for the instrument – some of the best of our times. Highly recommended.”

“She (Judith Pfeifer) takes the pieces as seriously as they deserve to be taken, attunes herself exactly to the style required and enchants with her naturalness, whereby she lacks nothing in technical competence. She thus makes the rather supercilious world of men aware of composing women and also those who play the piano.”

Sebastian Loskant in Nordwestdeutsche Zeitung
