"Uneven Sky is about home, the multitudes of homes, and it was made with lots of optimism and love. Syria may not be on the cover of this album but it is present in every detail of the music, and certainly in my heart."
Kinan Azmeh

"Home is ever-present and elusive. There and here. Then and now. Lost and found. Listening to this album, we find both the search for home and home itself."
Ara Guzelimian

The catastrophe of Fukushima in March 2011 prompted Sandeep Bhagwati to spontaneously write 17 haiku compositions as musical elegies - in memory of the victims, but also as a "meditation on the thin skin of our civilization on this restless planet" (Bhagwati). 
This edition presents 5 complete versions of the Miyagi Haikus in different instrumentations.
It includes 5 cycles of poems by Yoko Tawada, Yang Lian, Monika Rinck, Ranjit Hoskote, and Christian Filips written in response to these recordings.

The world premiere of Reinhold Glière's monumental third symphony in March 1912 was a culture-political event of the utmost importance in Russia. abriel Feltz presents this remarkable work in cooperation with the Beogradska filharmonija and makes it clear that this most interesting late-romantic composer is well worth a closer look.
