About the album
As every year at the start of the next SPANNUNGEN Festival year (2014 is the 17th year) there is a taster (CD album) available taken from the vast festival program of the previous year.
Since the start of the Festival, Antonín Dvóřak has always been a landmark composer and to all our surprise we discovered that one work has never been selected for an album release: THE Dumky, piano trio No. 4, which now is available in the ideal setting with Christian and Tanja Tetzlaff and his close friend Lars Vogt.
Beautiful lyricisms and noble material of themes and tunes were both the surprise of all audience when listening to the six (out of 12 in total) pieces of the cycle Zypressen; four perfect string players conducting magic moments into the room of this lovely building portraying Dvóřak by his lyrical side.
Without the next generation, Heimbach would not continue as it has. In the hydro electric plant building the pianist Aaron Pilsan, the cellist Marie-Elisabeth Hecker and Alissa Margulis (Violin) played the young and exciting Shostakovich’s piano trio No. 1 with their spontaneous drive and verve.
The live recordings are from June 5 and 7, 2014.
