Tamás Pálfalvi Trumpet
Christian Schmitt Organ
In an unusual combination of trumpet, flute, and organ, Tamás Pálfalvi, Tatjana Ruhland and Christian Schmitt present a colourful kaleidoscope of many centuries of music history. From Georg Philipp Telemann to Franz Liszt, we penetrate the branching cosmos of the 20th century. We experience how the avant-garde composer Tōru Takemitsu can elicit unusually sharp sounds from the flute in »Voice«, which often is reduced to a bird's voice. Moreover, the solo trumpet in »Paths« devoutly and gracefully commemorates the late musician Witold Lutosławski. Organ and trumpet find sonic splendour in Petr Eben's »Okna podle Marca Chagalla«: the spiritual power that the beauty of Marc Chagall's Jerusalem stained-glass windows exerts on us and becomes musically palpable.
