Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Exiled Music” shows the multifaceted diversity of the modernizing tone language of instrumental duos in the twentieth and twenty-first century chamber music genre. The five composers on this new release were politically unwanted, ostracized, and prosecuted, either because of their affiliation with Judaism or their use of new musical theories and shapes. The healing power of music can still be experienced, which takes away the heaviness of the pain and in the process, gives hope for redemption. Violinist Setareh Najfar-Nahvi and pianist Theresia Schumacher regularly perform as a duo. Their focus is on chamber music that is rarely performed and recorded elsewhere. “Exiled Music” shows the multifaceted diversity of the modernizing tone language of instrumental duos in the twentieth and twenty-first century chamber music genre.
