Kontraste: Friedemann Wuttke Solo Works
This recording presents virtuosic and cheerful Viennese Classical works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart alongside contemporary compositions that were influenced by the “wunderkind,” juxtaposed with colorful and melodious Spanish and South African Impressionist compositions. Some of these works were written for guitar, others are arrangements. The highly individual refinement and sensitivity of Friedemann Wuttke’s music makes him one of the most important artists of a musical genre which is called »contemporary instrumental music«. It is inspired by many different sources. His intelligent melange of pop, jazz, chamber music, meditative soundscapes and world music constitutes a refreshing alternative for an adult audience oversaturated with the meaningless glitter of the pop music scene today.
