Works by Luciano Berio, Elliott Carter, György Kurtág and Jan Müller-Wieland
Violinist and violist Elisabeth Kufferath sets out on a journey to the heart of sound in her first solo release with GENUIN. The program features works in which leading composers of the 20th and 21st centuries push the two instruments to their outermost limits. And the musician, hailing from Hamburg, takes palpable delight in the violin’s brilliance and the viola’s dark beauty: Luciano Berio’s multidimensional sensuality, György Kurtág’s luminous austerity, and not least, the thrilling discontinuities in two works by Jan Müller-Wieland, which Kufferath presents here in world premiere recordings. For intrepid explorers and dreamers!
