Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Alba is the premiere recording of trumpeter Markus Stockhausen's duo with pianist Florian Weber. The dramatic arc and palette of the duo's music is wide and at times, drawing the listener into an aural tapestry in which often the lines blur imperceptibly between composition and improvisation. In limpid settings, subtly shifting contrasts of mood and feeling mark the music, to beautiful, room-filling effect.
Personnel: Florian Weber (piano); Markus Stockhausen (trumpet, flugelhorn).
Liner Note Author: Gerhard Richter.
