About the album

This CD can be seen as an autobiographical story. It is a reflection of my Yugoslav and Dutch identity described in 10 pieces by 8 composers. All of these pieces have their unique musical language and way of expressing thoughts and feelings. From pure honest most tender love to the unearthly sounds in search of answers. Some of them speak about deep sorrow of loss, passionate greed for love and life, brutally distorted decomposed beauty or simply pure wild untamed joy. One thing that is common to all of them is that they were written or arranged for me with a deep understanding of my way of playing which is always intense, honest and expressive. I love them all like my children and enjoy watching them grow. In addition to the selection of already composed music from 1990 on, three new works were written for me, especially as a part of this project.

Julija Hartig, was born in Yugoslavia to a family of musicians. Since 1994, she lives in The Netherlands. Julija’s repertoire includes pieces from baroque to contemporary music. Her interpretations are characterised by a great expressivity and temperament, refined technique and a warm sensitivity for colour. This disc is a sort of autobiography in music, including ten contemporary pieces by right composers
