Notes & Reviews:

The contemporary music ensemble MusikFabrik, led by Diego Masson, is spotlighted in Wergo's new MusikFabrik series. Each release will have a theme and feature a selection of music by various composers to bring the theme to life. On Sprechgesange (Speech Songs), music by Jonathan Harvey, Beat Furrer, Georges Aperghis and Unsuk Chin stretches instrumental possibilities and allows the players to savor their vocal potential.
