Violeta Dinescu ‘Reversing Fields’


SKU: 5030822019176 Category:


Romanian-born Violeta Dinescu is gaining a reputation as one of the most gifted composers of her generation. These mainly solos and duos for viola, clarinet and saxophone blend European experimentalism, exploiting the instruments' multiphonics, with Romanian folk traditions. Most of these compositions were written specifically for the interpreters on the album, including Romanian virtuosos Sanda Craciun and Aurelian Octav Popa. As Dinescu explains: "In the beginning of every composition I try to find a sphere, an imaginary space where the flood of imagination can meet the rigour of thought."
