Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Münir Nurettin Beken and August Denhard explore the improvisatory richness of a performance tradition that their instruments may have shared in the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Ud virtuoso and composer Münir Nurettin Beken began his musical life in 1975 at the age of eleven, studying at the State Conservatory of Istanbul under the famous pedagogue Mutlu Torun. August Denhard has appeared with Seattle Baroque Orchestra, Chicago Music of the Baroque, Camarata Pacifica Baroque, and many other ensembles specializing in early music.

American Record Guide
The sound is excellent, the playing superb. This program is a cut above an ordinary lute program in both quality and interest.

MusicWeb international
There are too many genuinely beautiful works to name on this CD, each played with sensitivity and improvisatory freshness by both players, and recorded with intimate clarity in a pleasant acoustic. This is the kind of recording which will create atmosphere for your candle-lit dinner and pour balm on your fevered high-tech 21st century soul, but is far more than just consumer-fodder. The sense of falling backwards into a lost era of human communication through music is very strong here, and these musicians have indeed created a genuine 'meeting place' for two delicious sounding instruments and us, the meltingly appreciative audience.
