Notes & Reviews:

The Calmus Ensemble and Elke Heidenreich became acquainted during an engagement on a cruise ship, and the idea of collaborating on a musical-literary project was born. The "Nachtgedanken" (Nocturnal Thoughts) deal with the thoughts that - sometimes unbidden - take possession of our minds during the night, be they more or less beautiful, stimulating or frightening, funny or sad. Music alternates with the spoken word. In addition to her own writings, Elke Heidenreich reads texts by Erich Kästner, Ludwig Tieck, Marcel Proust and others. The musical contributions consist almost entirely of music that was composed or arranged for the Calmus Ensemble: Harald Banter composed jazz ballads on poems by Charles Baudelaire and set Christian Morgenstern's Galgenlieder to music. Sebastian Krause, who sings altus in the Calmus Ensemble, arranged several well-known chansons by Georg Kreisler for the ensemble. The result is a wonderful production, suitable for reveries and pleasure, pondering over and hearing again and again - not only on mellow summer evenings.
