Notes and Editorial Reviews

Czech singer/player/composer Iva Bittova has said "The violin is a mirror reflecting my dreams and imagination. I believe there are fundamentals to my performance, such as the musics vibration and resonance between the violin and my voice." That relationship is beautifully explored on this album - recorded at Auditorio Radiotelevisione svizzera, Lugano, and produced by Manfred Eicher - which expresses the essence of Bittova's unique and extraordinary solo work. These modestly-titled "Fragments" resist definition. An idiosyncratic "folk" music, contemporary composition, improvisation, any and all of these may apply from moment to moment. Bittova's music is a living, changing thing: "Deciding on a name for Read more my style of music is far from over yet". Iva Bittova was previously showcased in 2007 on the widely-acclaimed ECM album Mater by composer Vladimír Godar; this marks her solo debut for the label. Read less
