Notes & Reviews:

Ursula Mamlok lived for many years in New York before returning to Berlin, the city of her birth, in her eighties. Featuring a conspectus of her much admired chamber music, this recording is of the concert given in the city's prestigious Philharmonie in celebration of her ninetieth birthday. Mamlok herself has said: 'My main concern is that the music should convey the various emotions in it with clarity and conviction. It interests me to accomplish this with a minimum of material, transforming it in such multiple ways so as to give the impression of ever-new ideas that are like the flowers of a plant, all related yet each one different.'

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Six chamber works and an interview with Ursula Mamlock, recorded at a Berlin concert celebrating her 90th birthday. Ms Mamlok spent much of her life in the US. This concert took place in Berlin, where she has been active in recent years. Hats off to Ms Mamlok for her energetic activity. I for one don't miss them.
