About the album

If Eastern art music has a folk heart, its arteries are Roma and Klezmer sounds. From the orientalist imagination of Glazunov, the Jewish adoption of Prokofiev, the Uzbek inspiration of Khachaturian, to the Romani-Hungarian roots of Kokai and the Balkanism of Jan van der Roost: all composers on this disc build on the same toolbox of themes and techniques, and they all rely on the clarinet as the ultimate interpreter of this lore. Acknowledged and exquisitely performed by the Roeland Hendrikx Ensemble.

Roeland Hendrikx Ensemble

In 2015 Roeland Hendrikx founded his own chamber music ensemble, which essentially focuses on the rich repertoire for clarinet, piano and strings. In the largest line-up, there are six musicians on stage, but programmes in trio, quartet or quintet formation are also on offer. Although he gave his name to the ensemble, and remains its inspiration and driving force, Roeland exclusively works with like-minded colleagues. These are chosen in function of their technical and expressive craftsmanship, but also on the basis of the stripes they have earned in other ensembles, and the uniqueness they contribute to the chemistry of the ensemble.

In 2015 Roeland Hendrikx founded his own chamber music ensemble, which essentially focuses on the rich repertoire for clarinet, piano and strings. In the largest line-up, there are six musicians on stage, but programmes in trio, quartet or quintet formation are also on offer.

Although he gave his name to the ensemble, and remains its inspiration and driving force, Roeland exclusively works with like-minded colleagues. These are chosen in function of their technical and expressive craftsmanship, but also on the basis of the stripes they have earned in other ensembles, and the uniqueness they contribute to the chemistry of the ensemble. Because the Roeland Hendrikx Ensemble is a permanent collective that remains loyal to a small number of musicians, it can function – much more than any ad hoc formation – as a laboratory in which various spirits and styles can collaborate towards one overwhelming melting point.

The Roeland Hendrikx Ensemble is often praised for its technical perfection and the special symbiosis that emerges when individual talents consciously choose to collaborate instead of engaging in fleeting experiences. The ensemble has only one goal: to move, to enrapture, ... and to provide a memorable listening experience.
