Notes & Reviews:

Nils Bultmann's 'Ten Viola Duets' is built up from solo improvisations and sketches into complete works. Bultmann explores the timbral relationship between the viola and the didjeridu in 'From the Depths'. 'Lucid' blends improvised material into a more structured piece. The 'Suite for Solo Cello,' is based on Bach's 'Cello Suite #1,' a work Bultmann calls a 'foundational pillar of [his] musical life.' Peripatetic yet focused, the music on Troubadour Blue is open, warm-hearted and generous.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
From the Depths is a four-movement improvisation for viola and didjeridu. These two players work well together. 'Lucid' is a solo viola piece based on Bultmann's way of testing out a hall's acoustics. Finally we meet Karp in a fivemovement suite based on thoughts about Bach's Cello Suite 1 in G. All of this material makes pleasant and often amusing listening.
