Patricia Kopatchinskaja - Leader and Violin | Works by Veress, Ginastera, Coll and others
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.
