‘Remains’ is the second album by Jolente De Maeyer and Nikolaas Kende, after ‘Kreutzer Sonata’ (2016). It is a reflection on how the remains of the past inspire and influence our fast-changing world. Both Stravinsky and Auerbach faced the difficulties of their time and society and chose to seek a future in a different world by deciding to leave their homeland, Russia. Although both composers found a unique, personal and visionary style in their compositions, often inspired by modern times and their new surroundings, one can hear how much inspiration they found in music from the past and in their Russian background. How different, by contrast, was Schubert’s life. He too dreamed of a better world but was only to reach that place in his music.
