Notes and Editorial Reviews

The “Stube” is the parlor in a farmhouse, usually paneled in wood, where people go to rest, to celebrate, to mourn, and to make music. Alexandra Dienz, Christof Dienz, Barbara Romen, and Gunter Schneider guide us into a friendly and sophisticated version of this multi-purpose meeting place. The first CD comprises song-like pieces in various interpretations, while on the second CD the focus is skillfully shifted from structures to sounds. The musicians delve deep into the nature of their instruments, exploring their potential as sound-generating bodies, leading us from seemingly familiar models to free musical moods. Deep-reaching roots are carefully unearthed, grafted, and propagated with great intelligence and devotion, and the result is Read more pure delight.
