|A CD with first recording of two substantial music works by Swedish composer Fredrik Hagstedt - SINFONIA PER DUE VIOLINI; 45 minutes in four really enchanting and beautifully sounding movements, without ingratiation, and DEPURAZIONE, half an hour of pure musical purification
- all with the great Duo Gelland, already well-known world-wide for their exploring of the violin duo repertory of today, released on a handfull CDs on nosag records and more to follow. The composer´s words about this CD:
instead of an orchestra
the many ways that the instrument can sound
to listen to a room
a score made real
The ensemble has received more than 100 dedications - mostly violin duos, but also several concertos for violin duo and orchestra or choir. It has given the first performance of a handful of these compositions in the Berliner Philharmonie. Parallel to this work, the Gellands research and revive the vast forgotten violin duo repertory of the 18th century. That fruitful interplay between new and old is central in how Duo Gelland operates.
Already during 2012 the remaining Volume 5 CD in the Violin Duos series will be released by nosag records.
