Kacper Nowak (cello) en Christia Hudziy (piano) brengen later dit jaar hun eerste cd op de markt. ‘Contrastes’ is het resultaat van anderhalf jaar intens voorbereiden, repeteren en spelen. De cd bevat drie prachtige sonates van Johannes Brahms, Bohuslav Martinu en Alfred Schnittke. Bij het beluisteren van ‘Contrastes’ hoort u de liefde voor de muziek en ondervindt u het muzikaal vakmanschap van beide artiesten in interpretatie en uitvoering.
Een steuntje in de rug waard!
De artiesten aan het woord:
“Our idea was to produce a CD which would be a little different, one which, instead of imposing a uniformity of musical style on the pieces included, would draw its fascination from their very distinctness.
Our journey starts with Johannes Brahms and his sonata no. 1 in E minor, displaying all the profundity of German romanticism, and then moves on to the Czech Republic where, during World War II, Bohuslav Martinu composed his second sonata, deeply expressive of the Slav character which is so dear to us. Proceeding both chronologically and still further to the East, we end with Alfred Schnittke’s sonata no. 1, a piece which is far more modern and explosive, but which still retains some of the rhetorical style of the classics.
This project, ambitious without doubt, is one which inspires us enormously.
The affinity that we feel for each of these pieces of music persuaded us that we could really bring something special to them, while the contrast between them would help us locate them better in their respective historical and cultural contexts in a way which would underline how they are at the same time unique, yet belong to the environments from which they came.”
