Notes and Editorial Reviews

On their newest release, the Latvian Skride sisters present yet more composers from their extended Baltic homeland region. The uniting thread of the works on this album is "finding one's own sound", something which each of the featured composers first had to find, and an element that the sisters effortlessly achieve as performers. All four composers on this recording share a close link with the violin, and all four had an ambivalent relationship with the German and were also all friends. The fact that all composers share a very conscious musicological relationship to their music, which brings out their "own sound" in their works, proves to be highly rewarding, both for an unsentimental musicality and for the performers' Read more flawless, nuanced technique on the piano and violin, as well as for their open-minded listeners.
