Sage Und Mythos
Label: Ars Produktion
Steininger, Lilja; Le Roux, Erika
Mystical tales, legendary figures, elves, demons, fabulous characters... All compositions of this recording have one thing in common: the supernatural. To trace the underlying legends, stories and mythologies means to give expression to the different character traits and possible ambivalences of the figures with musical means. Thus an elf has a rather light, floating and elegant character, demons can be wild, unpredictable and impetuous, ghosts appear gloomy, cold and lightless, mermaids on the other hand sweet, melancholic and beguiling. The aim of the interpretation is to fill this immensely exciting creative space. Lilja Steininger (flute) plays together with Erika le Roux (piano) works by Friedrich Kuhlau, François Borne, Brett Dean, Carl Reinecke and Philipp Taffanel.
