Notes & Reviews:

In the words of J. W. von Goethe, "Orient and Occident / Cannot be separated ("West-Eastern Divan"). These lines are embodied in the music of the Pera Ensemble: Eastern fragrances waft around Baroque melodies, while Italian ornamentations embrace Ottoman melismas. This seemingly impossible combination produces an enchanting result!
