Folk Roots: Works By Janácek, Veress, Holliger, E
Catalog: GEN 20689
Cabeza, Maia; Fejérvári, Zoltán; Giovanos, Alexandros
The composers Maia Cabeza unites on her debut album come from the Czech Republic, Hungary and Romania. She traces the musical traditions that flowed into the compositions of the 1920s and 1930s by Janacek, Veress, Holliger, Enescu, Schulhoff and Bartók. The exception in this picture is Heinz Holliger's sparkling Spring Dance of 2001: a very unique approach to the musical heritage of his native Switzerland. The Canadian-American violinist Maia Cabeza, winner of the 2018 Johann Sebastian Bach Competition, together with Zoltan Fejérvari on the piano, makes these different influences delicately audible.
