Title: Voices in Bratislava
Label: CD Baby

Don't just see Bratislava, hear it! Each selection is linked to a site you may visit when you travel to Slovakia's capital. You'll enjoy listening as you plan your central European tour, or afterwards, to bring back memories of places you've seen. Every piece is introduced with notes about the music's link to the site -- purchase it as a download and you may listen first with these narrations, later without them. Individual tracks are not available, though, since the album is a coherent whole, and since some of the pieces are sections of larger works. Renaissance selections imaginatively recreate a feast that must have taken place in 1485, with music by Guillaume Dufay, Heinrich Isaac, and Pietro Bono. Choral selections include performances by the Bratislava City Chorus of works by local composers Joseph Haydn and Bela Bartok (yes! Both of them worked in this town!) and Slovak composers Mikulas Schneider-Trnavsky and Eugen Suchon. Slovak folklore by the lively local men's chorus Rodokmen ('Our Clan'). Solo selections by popular local operetta composer Gejza Dusik, and also by Schneider-Trnavsky, range from cute and sexy zingers to tear-jerkers on love and patriotism. Keyboard works include pieces either played in town or dedicated to local pupils by Mozart, Beethoven, Liszt, Anton Rubinstein, Johann Hummel, and Brahms, played by distinguished piano professors from the leading music conservatory of Slovakia (VSMU, or the University of Performing Arts in Bratislava). Each selection on this album is unique; the album as a whole tells a coherent story of a place you'll remember always!
