Damase / Eva-Christina Schonweiss / Ecke: Auf Dem Weg
Title: Auf Dem Weg
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS
Two experienced chamber musicians, who have already worked as soloists with the Deutsches Sinfonie-Orchester, present a duo album on GENUIN of works ranging from the late Romantic period to the 21st century. In a release that crosses all boundaries, Eva-Christina Schönweiß (violin) and Kirsten Ecke (harp) have put together an exciting program featuring music of people in transit and in search of a home. In doing so, they wander through a wide variety of cultures, performing duos by the great masters of classical modernism such as Maurice Ravel and Astor Piazzolla, as well as contemporary music by Roman Ryterband, Thomas Rajna, Hooshyar Khayam and Jean Michel Damase. The two instruments complement each other perfectly; the floating sounds of the harp and the sonorous warmth of the violin make for distinctive and exciting tonal blends.
