Notes & Reviews:

"Nothing that emerges from Manfred Eicher's ECM stable is likely to lack a considered musical context, and true to form cellist Thomas Demenga's programme is no mere string of encores. The chain of musical events always seems to follow some sort of purpose, be it for contrast or for continuity, the catchy opening solo, which ends on pizzicato harmonics, stopping short before Demenga and accordionist Teodor Anzellotti lean together for a couple of Bach chorales, one slow, the other sporting a swift and elegant accompaniment. Picking up the tempo allows for an easy hop from Bach to Cassadó and a switch from Anzellotti's sonorous wheezing to Thomas Larcher's sassy piano-playing. Good fun this, but a short-lived spree before Chopin takes over with Piatigorsky's sensitive transcription of the (early) C sharp minor Nocturne. Here Demenga's cello affects an expressive and gentle high baritone, nicely inflected with evenly deployed double-stops. Faure's Romance is an altogether darker, more restless piece and how ingenious to follow its rarefied atmosphere with Webern, first the serial Drei kleine Stucke, then the Straussian early Zwei Stucke. A more conventional soul would have put the early Webern pieces first, but not Demenga - and rightly so. Another well planned sequence has Demenga's own version of Chopin's famous E flat Nocturne followed by Liszt's La lugubre gondola (very passionately played), then a piece of his own devising "after Berg and Bach", and more Bach, again with Anzellotti. The programme closes with two uproarious minutes' worth of New York Honk, a bit like rushing across a busy road with your head still in the clouds, not surprising given everything that we've been listening to! I enjoyed it all hugely." -Gramophone
