Notes & Reviews:

Carlos Micháns is a genuine cosmopolitan. He was born in Argentina, has family ties in Great Britain, the Basque Country, and the United States, makes his home in the Netherlands, and travels around the world. Hardly dogmatic, he joins together all sorts of.

Micháns is especially fascinated by Southern India. He has transferred folk songs, ragas, and temple songs of Dravidian culture into Western notation and obtained material for his "Dravidian Moods" from them. As is typical of him, the sources are not simply cited; he instead translates the atmosphere into an abstract composition based on the Western model. The work was composed for the oboist Pauline Oostenrijk and the Utrecht String Quartet.

The Divertimento No. 3 is also based on motifs from Southern India. It varies a Christian Tamil song in keeping with the Western tradition.

The Utrecht String Quartet has invited close friends to perform with it on its newest production: oboist Pauline Oostenrijk, pianist Severin von Eckardstein, and the Ruysdael Quartet.
