Emma Moore & Klara Hornig
Debussy, Ullmann, Krauss
Emma Moore and Klara Hornig present a richly coloured collection of late romantic songs by Claude Debussy, Clemens Krauss and Viktor Ullmann.
Debussy, known for his impressionistic colours, approaches “Cinq Poèmes de Charles Baudelaire” with lush harmonies and opulence. The rarely recorded “Acht Gesänge nach Gedichten von Rainer Maria Rilke” by Austrian conductor and composer Clemens Krauss take the listener to a more metaphysical sphere. Moore and Hornig close their first album with love songs by Viktor Ullmann, composed much later but still in the spirit of the ending 19th century: “Fünf Liebeslieder nach Ricarda Huch”, Op. 26.
Fremd bin ich eingezogen
Winterreise interkulturell (Schubert/Guth)
What does home mean? In Schubert‘s song cycle, we meet a traveller: a stranger, a homeless person, an unhappy lover, an aimless wanderer, torn between his dreams and bitter reality. The Asambura-Ensemble connects Schubert with Persian poems and music about strangeness and loneliness, developing new perspectives. “I arrived a stranger, a stranger I depart” – in view of the homelessness of so many refugees, this newly interpreted song cycle is highly up to date.
Bach Cello Suites
Juris Teichmanis presents his very unique interpretation of the complete Cello Suites by Johann Sebastian Bach. Flamboyant colours are created through the standard pitch of 400 Hertz and the choice of two historic instruments fitted with gut strings. The rarely heard Violoncello Piccolo with its additional fifth string reveals a surprising perspective at the end of the cycle in the sixth suite.
