Notes and Editorial Reviews

The ideals of the Freemasons of brotherhood and freedom fell on fruitful ground for a considerable number of great musicians, including Jean Sibelius, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Francesco Geminiani. The two young musicians Katja Zakotnik (cello) and Naila Alvarenga-Lahmann (piano) are now releasing a CD with chamber music works inspired by Freemasonry. The programme includes cheerful impressions from the Magic Flute, as interpreted by Beethoven, and Nordic sounds suffused with light by the Finnish national composer Sibelius, as well as music of Johann Nepomuk Hummel. An unusual compilation, movingly performed at the highest level!
