more Details

A kaleidoscope of colours and sounds from all over the world. Patricia Kopatchinskaja and CAMERATA BERN announce a new album of highly virtuosic string  works from the 20th and 21st centuries. Music by Veress, Bartók, Ginastera, Kurtág and Ligeti feature alongside a newly-commissioned double concerto by Spanish composer Francisco Coll  (*1985) starring Sol Gabetta, on this thrilling and powerful new album.  

All composers connect through their folkloristic re-imagination of music, as well as an  uncompromising physical and sensual approach as they meet dissonances head-on. The line  between soloists and chamber musicians is blurred due to the extreme demands put on all players,  making for an immersive and gripping listener experience.
