Duo Imaginaire: Quinary - 5 new Works für Clarinet & Harp

Redel - Zabel - Heucke - Birkenkötter - Hahne

The five works presented here, all premiere recordings (new CD TXA13035, 2014), were initiated by the Duo Imaginaire: John Corbett, Clarinet & Simone Seiler, Harp and given their world premiere performances in 2012/13.
A quinary structure arises through the shared relationship of the five composers (Redel, Zabel, Heucke, Birkenkötter, Hahne) to the federal state of Westphalia in Germany. Despite this, the composers could hardly differ from each other more, both in style and in character. From melancholia and jocular high spirits to dramatically explosive outbursts, these works offer new forms of expression that take this rare sonic combination to the limits - supported by new playing techniques and effects.
