Expedition Audio Recommended
... So does this work? That depends completely on your point of view, and what you might be looking for when you put this disc in your player for the first time. But I think that any music lover would be moved by the beautiful rendition of Fritz Kreisler's Siciliano heard here, or by Ms. Hosprova's soaring viola (yes, viola, soaring) in the Prélude La fille aux cheveux de lin by Claude Debussy. This is an hours worth of immensely pure, moving and beautiful music. ... read more ...

The soft, silvery tone of the harp and the rich, dark timbres of the viola make these instruments the ideal combination for playing a gentle night song or lullaby. Chanson dans la nuit is a meditation amid the quiet of the night... Yet Jitka Hosprová and Katerina Englichová are also able to make the night dance with their instruments. The listener can savour almost an hour's worth of enchanting music for the viola and harp ranging from the Baroque masters to the French Impressionists. It is hard to believe that La fille aux cheveux de lin or Ravel's Pavane were not originally created for these very instruments and that they can be played otherwise. The program was compiled for the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra's enormously popular "For Mothers-To-Be" concert cycle. It makes a refreshing change to hear the bright sound of the violin replaced by the deeper colors of the viola, the brilliancy of the piano by the lambent tones of the harp, especially when the two instruments are in the hands of two such charming ladies and superlative musicians. Their music finds its way directly to the heart.
