Product details

Composer Eve Duncan commissioned violinists from Austria, China, Japan as well as Australia, to record her compositions which she then compiled onto this fascinating CD. Here we hear the violin naked, with piano, percussion, traditional Chinese instruments and didjeridu, as well as in clusters in quartet and orchestra.

The warmth, humour and generosity of these violinists has been a strong influence on the created works, many of which have been composed especially for them. Their individuality has inspired complex imaginative paths and technical solutions in varying textures, forms, rhythms and pitch choices.

Each work is an artistic exploration of the worlds that are not accessible directly through the senses. These spiritual landscapes were journeys for the Australian composer, often lasting several months, and will hopefully ignite an inward journey for the listener, or an illuminating and full moment of experience.

Duration: 58 min.

Liner notes include brief biographical notes on performers.
