Notes & Reviews:

This release is the debut Musica Omnia album from the Hugo Wolff Quartet. The Hugo Wolff Quartet hails from Vienna, and is one of Europes leading ensembles of the younger generation. The group specializes in both classical and contemporary repertoire. This two disc set combines Ralf Yusuf Gawlicks most recent work, Imagined Memories, with one of the quartets quoted in the pieces introduction, Schuberts A minor Rosamunde Quartet, D. 803. Also included in this set is an extensive 40-page full color booklet with notes and essays in both German and English. Imagined Memories is Ralf Yusuf Gawlicks most personal work. It is a musical offering to the biological mother that he never knew. The piece utilizes the entire range of string techniques, and is a vision of haunting and evocative beauty.

This new release is Musica Omnia's debut of the Hugo Wolf Quartett from Vienna, Europe's leading younger-generation string quartet, specialists in both classical and contemporary repertoire. For this debut, the quartet has chosen to pair Ralf yusuf Gawlick's latest work, "Imagined Memories," with one of the many quartets quoted in its introduction, Schubert's A minor "Rosamunde" Quartet, D. 803. "Imagined Memories is Gawlick's most intensely personal work: a musical offering to the biological mother he never knew. This new piece, which utilizes the entire range of possible string techniques, is a major essay of haunting and evocative beauty, representing the intersection of memories, both real and imagined, of three presonalities whose paths crossed only briefly. To bring this dreamscape to life required, literally, the best string quartet in the world, whose technique and musical knowledge are all encompassing: the Hugo Wolf Quartett of Vienna, in whom the composer has found the ideal partnership, and to whom the work is dedicated.
