Ute Schleich & Katharina Uzal - Colori Contrastanti (CD)
conrec019Regular price $19.23
The recorder player Ute Schleich and Katharina Uzal on the cello form the Duo Colori Contrastanti, which, with temperament, empathy and practical performance knowledge, is dedicated to a musical niche that is worth illuminating and seeing. They are recording new works for recorder and cello – all world premiere recordings apart from the Variations by Bernstein. 'New' here does not only mean 'works from the 20th and 21st centuries'. - "Devaneio" by Diana Cemeryte, for example, was written for this duo in 2021 - but also the adaptation of Vivaldi's autumn for this cast and the first edition of the duets by Domenichini.
The CD contains works by Leonard Bernstein, Heinz-Martin Lonquich, Diana Cemeryte, Katerina Pinosova-Ruzickova, Diego Uzal, Antonio Vivaldi/Winfried Michel and Carlo Domenichini.
The great differences between the two instruments repeatedly require a struggle to find the best combination and an intensive interaction in terms of dynamics, intonation, articulation and timbre. Of course, there are ways and means by which these two very different instruments can communicate and deal with each other on an equal footing. The name Colori Contrastanti describes on the one hand the very different instrumental conditions of the duo, on the other hand also the colorful program, which is characterized by the most diverse music.
The two musicians got to know each other through joint teaching activities, and since 2015 they have been connected by an intensive and fruitful musical collaboration, based on personal sympathy and curiosity about the other instrument.
