The exceptional album The Storyteller includes premiere recordings of works by the distinguished Greek composer Nickos Harizanos. "The album consists of works written for my favorite instrument which have been composed within a period of twelve years. All these years I have had the privilege and happiness to work with the great soloists and friends Carla, Wilfrido and Natalia who performed and premiered these works. Some of the works are dedicated to them and have been published by Tetractys and Musica Ferrum Editions in London. Some of them are very demanding and virtuosic; some others explore new sound worlds, such as Onwards to Primitiveness (for Baroque Flute and Tape) while in other works there are passages using microtonal pitches and extended techniques. The piece Voices in the air is originally written for Great bass recorder, dedicated, and premiered by Sylvia Hinz. The compositions have been performed in the U.K., Mexico, Germany and Greece and have been recorded in London and Athens. (Nickos Harizanos)
