Violeta Dinescu and Karmeila Tsepkolenko ‘Piano Music’


SKU: 5030820024080 Categories: ,


As composers, Violeta Dinescu and Karmelila Tsepkolenko seek a balance between two important poles. On the one hand, there is the essential, deep, inner life of music, a central concern of south-eastern European music, which is reflected in technical terms such as monody, heterophony, modality. On the other hand, the active imagination, combined with structural individuality that is typical of much western music. Thanks to the tremendous artistry of virtuoso pianist Werner Barho this collection of piano solos reveal the range of both Dinescu and Tsepokolenko's vocabulary, drawing from the more narrative folk traditions of their respective countries and integrating them within contemporary compositional processes. A lesson in style, imagination and beauty.
