Just in time for the 80th birthday of Christian Ridil, GENUIN is releasing a second CD of chamber music works by the composer whom the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung acclaimed as "contemporary, rhythmically refined, perfect in craftsmanship and form"! Only first recordings are compiled here. We hear the Eliot Quartett, members of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, and further excellent musicians. The diverse instrumentation of the works and their unique tonal languages present a portrait of a composer who is firmly rooted in tradition and yet always seeks new paths, be it in the two award-winning works "Drei Sonette nach Martin Opitz" and "MEYENMUSICK" for four horns, or the highly acclaimed string quartet "Sisifo", a significant contribution to this genre.
