Emil Viklicky and Pavel Hruby - Between Us

It Was Right At

Anna Romanovska, Petr Tichy, Michal Hruby

Various musical styles bring unexpected sounds to this highly original improvised album.  Anna Romanovska is a Classically trained violinist, Petr Tichy a jazz bass player and Michal Hruby's music derives from Punk-Folk.  The zither-like Japanese koto adds its own tonal qualities to this meeting of musical minds!

Shostakovich - Symphonies 1 in F Minor, Op. 10 and 15 in A Major, Op. 141

Dmitri Shostakovich

For the final volume in the Gega New Shostakovich Symphony series his 1st, composed around 1924, is coupled with his last, the 15th, written 47 years later.  A musical world opening is followed by a loving farewell.  The quotations from Rossini and Wagner remain enigmatic.  The recording has a huge dynamic range!
