LINDAL, ANNA - SITTING SILENTLY (CD)


"Focus is on Hans Otte - one of the true legends in European music; as composer, pianist and director of the music department at Radio Bremen, Germany. In the early 90's he composed a violin work of 50 minutes' duration, here performed by leading Swedish violinist Anna Lindal: alltagsmusik/Every Day's Music. A poem recited by the soloist sets the tone: "sitting silently, doing nothing, spring comes - and the grass grows by itself." Music which takes its time - which flourishes in stillness. The same is true for Lars Hallnäs' variations for violin on a text by Georg Trakl - in this case too, the title indicates the character of the music: Stille führt der Steg (Silent brings the path...). "This music is hard to live without, once you've heard it." (Svenska Dagbladet) special offer
