Chamber Music

The contemporary voice of Turkish music

 

Atilla Aledemir, Violin
Ş
evki Karayel, piano

Catalog number 21026


This CD presents works of composers from different periods, who could justly be said to represent “the contemporary voice of Turkish music”. The selection of works for violin and piano does justice to the technical peculiarities of each individual work and gives a hearing to Turkish music of the 20th century as a whole.

Theme and Variations on „Ich hab’ die Nacht geträumet“
Der Spiegel for string quartet
Sextett – Serenade

George Alexander Albrecht

„Kolja Lessing as the soloist and Alexander Albrecht as conductor present the Suite for Piano and Orchestra as a very entertaining composition, …, which betrays the influence of Spanish folk music and jazz and is characterised in all its differing types of genre and movements by a laconic shortness. Rudolf Hindemith reveals a quite amazing originality and bubbly temperament.”

Quasi Improvisata - Works for Cello & Bajan

David Geringas, cello
Geir Draugsvoll, bajan

Catalog number 21008

Every interpretation is, to a certain degree, an improvisation of a text which remains unseen to the listener. This is true of the works performed on this CD in a very particular way, because they are only partly written down and rely for the rest on the will and fantasy of the player.

The excellent duo – the cellist David Geringas and the Bajan (button accordion) player Geir Draugsvoll – draw their inspiration from quite different sources. But they also have something in common: they make each piece to an inspired "quasi improvisata"  which is forever unique.

“My Recolections is a collection of virtuoso show pieces and blissfully tuneful character pieces. These present a richly varied panorama of fine-sounding perspectives and are all marked by the memories of a common past which was corrupted by the political state of affairs.“
