Bartók: Contrasts, Bb 116
Format: COMPACT DISC
The pieces contained in this album are not only the result of ten years work and their own matured performative proposal but also the challenge of approaching the 5 “essential” pieces of the violin, clarinet and piano repertoire. Of course, we could talk of other widely interpreted pieces of great artistic value, but their authorship (5 big names of the 20th century music) give us credit on this selection. It is also of great interest the fact that, even though the 5 pieces were composed only 20 years apart (between 1919 and 1938, the inter-war period) they correspond with 5 completely different styles, serving as a wonderful summary of what happened in the history of art during that period. The works are beautifully performed here by Eduardo Raimundo, Mario Perez, and Francisco Escoda.
