Andreas Otto Grimminger and Josef-Stefan Kindler of K&K Verlagsanstalt write of this new release: “Publishing Authentic Classical Concerts entails for us capturing and recording outstanding performances and concerts for posterity. The performers, audience, opus and the concert hall enter into an intimate dialogue that in its form and expression, its atmosphere, is unique and unrepeatable. It is our aim, the philosophy of our house, to enable the listener to acutely experience every facet of this symbiosis, the intensity of the performance, so we record the concerts in direct 2-Track Stereo digital HD. The results are unparalleled… The concerts at the UNESCO World Heritage Maulbron Monastery supply the ideal conditions for our aspirations…” This release features Armenian sacred and secular music for female voices, including chants from the fourth to the twenty-first century, performed by the Geghard Ensemble, the vocal ensemble from St. Geghard Monastery in Armenia, one of the ancient spiritual centers of Armenia.
