The musicians working with soprano Maacha Deubner take us to exotic worlds of sound on their new GENUIN album, which is exclusively comprised of world premiere recordings. These include works by the Russian composer Elena Firsova and fellow composers, set in dialogue with the oeuvre of the poet Ossip Mandelstam. In addition to Firsova's works, we make acquaintance with music by Sofia Gubaidulina, Edison Denissov, and Valentin Silvestrov. Maacha Leubner and her colleagues from the KAPmodern ensemble of the Kammerphilharmonie Potsdam devote themselves to the invariably highly expressive music, performing it with great seriousness and mastery.
